This Asian Cucumber Carrot Salad with crispy sesame tofu on the side, is perfect for a light lunch or dinner. Not so heavy but still nourishing and fresh. The Asian Flavors in the salad dressing and the crispy and bit spicy sesame tofu pieces match perfectly together.
When I started to be vegetarian (and later vegan), I had quite a hard time to prepare tofu in a way, it is exciting and delicious. I don’t know why, but it never worked out. Meanwhile, I tried a lot of recipes and cooked with Tofu in very different ways. Whether scrambled, fried or blended – now I love Tofu! So in case, you also have a hard time with Tofu or you already love it as me, try this recipe and I am sure you will like it!
For fried Tofu, it’s always good to use firm tofu, so it is not falling apart while preparing it. As the natural tofu tastes like nothing, a good marinade and seasonings are everything! But no reason to get nervous. You don’t need much to spice up your tofu and give it the right flavor. This recipe is a great example, how exciting tofu can be. Marinated in a spicy mixture and coated in a crunchy sesame dough – can it get better?
