Pan Fried Organic Seaweed Tofu


















I like to indulge in organic stuff once in a while. I frequent the organic shop quite often though because one of my colleague is very into organic food. So we will go together and for me it is just browsing through their shelves and see what they have that I really need and I will normally purchase some stuff back if they are not too pricey . I opened their chiller and found some organic tofu. I could not resist them for I  am a tofu person :)  I bought back 2 types - pumpkin tofu and seaweed tofu....ohhhh, I could finish a block of tofu by myself especially when I pan fried them and dipped with some Thai chilli sauce...one word  HEAVENLY  !

















The texture of the tofu is firm and nicely flavored with the seaweed . A block of this organic seaweed tofu measuring 4" X 2.5" X 1.5"  costs RM5 almost $2usd . You can either steam them and pour a thickened oyster sauce over them or pan fried them like I do with grapeseed oil. Crisps on the outside and soft on the inside. Dip them with any sauce of your choice, you will surely be captivated by their unique flavor. I don't really know what they have put into the tofu besides the seaweed but it was aroma when you pan fried them that will make you salivate. Tasty !  I have another block in the freezer - the pumpkin one still sitting in the container.  I will mostly probably stir fry them with some mushrooms and shrimps.

Have a nice day !
