Ingredients: Sweet Chili Lime Tofu

  • 1 block Tofu, extra firm, 14 oz
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp Reduced Sodium Tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 3/4 tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 Zest of the Lime

How to Make Sweet Chili Lime Tofu

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 5 steps you must follow to make Sweet Chili Lime Tofu in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Prepare the sweet chili lime sauce by whisking all of the ingredients together until the sugar and salt is dissolved.
  • Step 2
  • Drain tofu and cut it into small triangles. I slice the block into 8 rectangles, then each rectangle in half to make two squares per rectangle. I cut each square diagonally to make four triangles per square.
  • Step 3
  • Heat a well-seasoned cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat. A 10” skillet will fit all the tofu, so if you’re using a smaller skillet, you’ll need to do this in batches. In order to properly “dry fry” the tofu, you’ll need a pan the tofu won’t stick to even without any oil.
  • Step 4
  • Spread the tofu out in one layer in the pan. Using a spatula, press the tofu. The liquid will squeeze out and boil away, and the tofu will begin to turn golden. The more water that evaporates, the sturdier the tofu will be, so be gentle at first to prevent the tofu from breaking up. After several minutes, flip the tofu over and press the other side. After about 10 minutes of dry frying, you can turn off the heat and set the tofu aside for finishing later, or proceed to adding the sauce.
  • Step 5
  • To finish the tofu, bring the pan back up to temperature if it’s not already very hot. You want to heat the pan and the tofu over high heat, making sure the tofu is hot all the way through. Add the sauce and stir to coat the tofu. Turn off the heat. The sauce will bubble up, reduce, and form a glaze. If it isn’t bubbling up and forming a glaze, turn the heat back on high and cook until the glaze is.. well.. glaze-y.
