Added my crispy tofu to a simple spinach salad, with Edamame and tomatoes. I used Japanese Miso dressing I got from Costco. Check my previous post on how to prepare crispy tofu

Many of you asked how to make tofu crispy. Here's what I like to do. The brand I prefer is Azumaya, it comes in a 16oz container. I slice into 5 equal servings, pat dry with paper towel. Then on non stick pan heat about 1.5 tbsp coconut oil to medium heat. Cook tofu slices 6-7 minutes on each side. Pretty simple. I'll post my Asian Lettuce Wraps with tofu tonight .
