Vegan Crispy Stir-Fried Tofu With Broccoli

Hi Kenji

I wonder if you ever tried breaking the tofu into bite sized "nuggets" instead of slicing it? We often do it this way. It increases the surface area for better batter and sauce interaction, and looks more organic (and less like eating rubber erasers). We make butter tofu (like butter chicken....) using this technique. It makes it extra crispy and saucy!

The Vegan Experience: I'll Have That Without [X] Please

You are doing great! My go-to creamy ingredients include butters (peanut of course, and almond, cashew, macadamia, sunflower seed...) as well as avocados, coconut cream and milk, and puréed silken tofu. I also make sauces (fake mayo like) with the tofu. Have you looked into some vegan / vegetarian cookbooks? I also carry a big purse with snacks - nuts, roasted soybeans, dried fruit etc... and eat them straight up as needed, and use them to doctor up restaurant salads needing a bit more substance. Enjoy!
