Chinese Crispy Fried Tofu

Chinese Crispy Fried Tofu
It feels like yesterday, but the memory is fresh. Eons ago, I happened to spot some "white slabs" sitting next to my all time favorite Paneer, in the aisle of the grocery store I frequented. See, I was this good girl who went shopping for my mom during the weekends, all on my own, so that my mom can relax her feet. At times I used to buy other stuff that caught my fancy apart from the list my mom provided. So on this particular day, this packet with something called as "tofu", went into my basket. I, in fact, thought it was probably another "brand" of Paneer and even wondered at the peculiar name ( ..those naive days!!!) Once home, my mom had a different story to tell. In fact I think I love it even more (if that's even possible!) References recipe minimally adapted from the best international recipe Basic Information Prep Time: Under 15 min Cook Time: Under 15 min Serves: 4 people Ingredients Tips 1. Method Slice the tofu into cubes/1-inch thick slabs. Make sure to blend it well. Coat it well.

Warm Chickpea and Artichoke Salad Jalapeno Hummus Ravioli I have been experimenting with hummus a lot lately while serving as the Sabra Brand Ambassador on MixingBowl.com and decided to try a Hummus Ravioli recipe they shared on their Facebook Page. I spent a bit of time debating about which hummus flavor to use: lemon, roasted red pepper etc. and decided to go spicy with the jalapeno flavor. I was not sure how this would taste but imagined it could be fun and boy was I right. I honestly thought it tasted like a jalapeno popper. This is a really quick recipe and would really impress guests. Which flavor of Sabra Hummus do you think would taste great in the ravioli?

Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Chili If you’ve ever tried to make a vegetarian chili, you know how wrong this stuff can go. Some versions call for up to six cans of beans – a recipe for solitary confinement if there ever was one. Others taste like someone dumped a shaker of cumin into a pot of vegetable soup. Homemade Snickers Bars Insanity. That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE. You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs?

Spinach Tofu Patties I love vegetarian burgers because they're usually packed with lots of vegetables and other yummy ingredients, and there are so many ways to enjoy them - you can put them in between a bun and dress them up with your favourite toppings, but they are often just as good or even better on their own, without the bun! These patties definitely fit into the latter category. They are so flavourful that I preferred to just eat them with a fork rather than hiding them in a bun underneath other toppings. The patties themselves are actually made with tofu, but you would probably never guess just by looking at them (and you could probably serve these to a tofu-hater without them knowing either!) They are also filled with spinach and asian flavours like sesame oil and soy sauce. I decided to add some peanut butter to mine too, to go with a sort of asian peanut sauce theme.
