Asian Fried Tofu?
Posted by s2huang at 09/03/2012
I often see this Fried Tofu or Marinated Tofu in Asian Restaurants. Are those vegan? since I know some Chinese restaurants use animal flavorings to wrap up the tofu and then deep fried.
Is Marinated Tofu safe?
For marinated tofu, it probably depends on what ingredients are in the marinade. For example, a Thai Marinated Tofu may have fish sauce as an ingredient.
Wish I knew more about this. Maybe someone with restaurant experience can weigh in and let us know. : )
I'll ask them next time and shoot you a message. It should be less awkward asking this since I am fluent in Chinese.
I would just bake your tofu's. I set my oven to 350 and make the tofu into little squares or slices. Coat a pan with oil, then cook for 15 minutes one side and 15 minutes the other side. If you can't cook them through they should be tough enough at this point you can fry the rest in a pan. Healthier and better! Plus your worries are left behind :)
