extra firm tofu


1. The first thing you have to do is soak up some of the excess water from your tofu. It'll be too wet to work with if you don't. Simply wrap the block in layers of paper towels and set it on a paper plate. Then set another plate on top of it and weight it down with something just so it presses enough to help expel the water but not squish it too much.

2. Cut your tofu into thin "pages" and then cut into thin strips of "french fries". The thinner they are, the easier they will fry up and crispier they will be!

3. Crunch your pork rinds into "powder" using the blender, or using the food processor. You just want it to resemble bread crumbs. You can add salt or other spices to your pork rind crumbs and mix in now if you want or just salt the tofu strips. Then gently roll your tofu strips into the breading to coat.

4. Using an oil that can be heated at high temps for frying (vegetable oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, or palm oil), heat to medium/high heat and then carefully drop in your fries. You want your oil to cover the bottom of the pan, but not so much that your fries are swimming in it. Turn them till all sides are browned and crispy to your liking! If you like your french fries crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, don't leave them in as long. You could also bake these instead if you'd like. Probably bake them at around 400 degrees.

5. When your fries are done, transfer them to a paper towel to drain. They'll continue to crisp up a bit while cooling off.

6. Now don't forget your favorite fry sauce!

Bon Appetit!
