Crispy Fried Tofu

Quick high protein meal.

I’m a big believer of getting children involved in cooking and learning how to make simple meals. My youngest is great at making suggestions and being adventurous.

Recently she asked if we could fry up some tofu.

Here’s how she made it:

  1. Slice firm tofu into strips and pat dry with a paper towel. On the side wisk one egg white in a bowl and in another bowl mix chia seeds with panko (Japanese breadcrumbs). Dip the tofu in the egg mix and then into the seed bowl.
  2. In a warm pan with olive oil or avocado oil fry the tofu, turning it once it’s brown to toast all the sides.
  3. Serve with a salad and soya sauce with chilli sauce for dipping.

Tofu is made from soybeans is an excellent source of iron and calcium. Chia seeds are a great plant-based source of omega-3s, full of antioxidants plus fibre and protein.
