 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Firm tofu
  • 2 c Chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 Clove garlic; minced and
  • -pressed
  • 1/2 c Soy sauce
  • Lemon-pepper seasoning to
  • -taste
  • 1 tb Cajun hot-pepper seasoning
  • -(more if you like hot; but
  • -remember; it is also pretty
  • -salty)
  • 1/2 c Cornstarch
  • Cooking oil or spray-on
  • -cooking oil


Slice the tofu into 1/2 inch slices. Pat dry and place in a deep bowl.
Combine the broth ( you can use hot water and powdered broth mix for this)
and the next three ingredients and pour over the tofu. Let sit in the
refrigerator at least 8 hours. Remove tofu slices from the marinade and
pat dry. Combine the cornstarch and hot-pepper seasoning. and shake over
the sliced tofu. Heat oil in a skillet and sauti the slices until they are
light brown and crisp. Serve immediately. Serves two as main dish or four
as appetizer. If serving as an appetizer, cut tofu into 1 inch cubes. It is
also delicious saut'ed without the cornstarch crust. (And a little less
caloric, although it is already pretty low in fat.)

This is delicious with a side of sesame noodles and steamed or stir-fried
oriental vegetables.

It also makes a nice "chicken" salad or a sandwich. The marinade makes a
nice soup base.

You can also purchase the Cajun seasoning in a salt-free version. **Even
my "I hate tofu" friend ate this up and asked for seconds. Just don't tell
anyone it's tofu til after they stuff themselves.
