Crispy Tofu

I must admit, I am not fond of Tokwa or Tofu. But I like this crispy
tofu recipe we got from Del Monte Kitchenomics.

Crispy Tofu

3/4 k tofu
4 egg whites
2 C japanese bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt

1/4 C white sugar
1/4 c mirin
6 TBSP Del Monte red cane vinegar
1/2 c light soy sauce
2/3 c water
2 stalks green onions chopped

Slice tofu into 1/4" thick rectangles. The recipe calls for 1/2"
thickness but I prefer it to be crispier so I sliced it thinner.
Beat egg whites with salt until soft peak stage. Dip tofu.
Dredge in bread crumbs and deep fry. Drain in paper towels.
Set aside

For the dip, simmer together the first 5 ingredients for 5 minutes.
Cool. Add green onions before serving the crispy tofu. I didn't have
green onions so I got some dill from our garden for presentation.

You can also use broiled eggplants instead of tofu.

Do you think I could use this to make Tokwat Baboy? I've never made it before but my husband loves it ever since my mom ordered it for him at a Goldilocks restaurant in LA. This looks so delicious and easy to prepare!

Hi Tangled Noodle, sorry I am no expert on Tokwa't Baboy...I hope your husband will like this recipe.

Mamely, at first I thought I'll be eating chicken nuggets.

Thanks, Sweetiepie...
