crispy glazed tofu with honey, chilli and ginger

Crispy little Asian inspired tofu bites with a sticky and spicy glaze of honey, chilli and ginger. Serve with rice or noodles as a vegetarian or vegan main dish or as a moreish little snack with a cold beer. 

Recipe by Ema at De Tout Coeur Limousin


200g firm tofu cut into 1.5cm cubes
2 tbsp cornflour
salt and pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp curry powder
2 tbsp cooking oil

for the glaze:

2 tsp grated ginger
1 tbsp honey (use maple syrup or agave syrup for vegan alternative) 
1 tbsp hot chilli sauce (I used sriracha)

optional extras:

chopped fresh chilli
sesame seeds


Make the glaze by mixing the honey, grated ginger and chilli sauce together - leave to one side while you prepare the tofu. 

Add salt, pepper, curry powder and garlic powder to the cornflour and mix well. Coat the tofu cubes in the seasoned cornflour, shaking off any excess.

Heat the cooking oil in a large frying pan then add the tofu. Fry for about 5 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. For the last minute of cooking add the glaze, making sure to coat all the tofu pieces well.

Finish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and chopped fresh chilli if you like for a bit of extra spice. Serve with rice or noodles.
