Squeee, first food post from the new house!! Ok, not a recipe from this place, but a few old ones still remain, but expect a ‘new house’-recipe later this week. The new kitchen is getting used to, but mostly because it’s so big. I have a lot of space to work on, which means cleaner cooking.

Another thing I have to get used to is that fact that I no longer cook on gas but on electric, some places take a little longer to heat. A well, challenge accepted?

This tofu-recipe is something I made a few weeks ago, I never thought this simple way of prepping tofu would make it so crispy. Something to remember!!! Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this recipe. I’m gonna wait for the Mr. to get home and serve him his first meal in the house (which sounds a lot more domestic goddess then it actually is 😛 )

Huli Huli tofu 1

What do you need? (2 servings)

  • 175 gr. of tofu, pressed (so about 200-225 unpressed)
  • Potato starch
  • lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons of low salt soy sauce
  • rice
  • white cabbage
  • green beans
  • cashew nuts
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • chilli powder
  1. To press the tofu, cut the tofu into slices about 1/2 cm thick. Put on a plate, cover with paper towels, put the tofu on top en press some paper and on top as well. When most of the liquid has been pressed out, leave to dry a bit more on paper towels until most of the moist is out. After that, mix the potato starch and chilli powder en cover the tofu in the mixture.
  2. Cook the rice according to the directions on the package, leave to rest after that.
  3. Mix the ketchup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger together and set aside.
  4. Cut the white cabbage into 1 cm thick slices, removing the hard bits. Cut the beans in halves
  5. Heat oil in a wok and fry the beans for about 5 minutes until they are bright green
  6. Add the white cabbage and fry until soft. Add the sauce
  7. While that is frying up, heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the tofu until nice and crispy.
  8. Put the rice on a plate, cover with the vegetables and put some slices of tofu on top. Add some cashews for extra crunch.
