  • skillet
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (or canola oil or vegetable oil)
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup Trader Joe's Carolina Gold sauce (add more or less depending on your preference)
  1. Heat skillet to medium low-high*. Coat bottom of pan with oil.

  2. Wash and slice tofu into rectangles into about 1/4 of an inch. Dry tofu on paper towel.

  3. Add salt and pepper to tofu.

  4. Carefully fry tofu in pan until one side is golden brown. Flip tofu and cook the other side until golden brown.**

  5. Coat tofu with Trader Joe's Carolina Gold sauce. Cook for additional 5-10 minutes or until sauce has caramelized. Repeat process for other side.

Frying tofu is chaotic sometimes. Cook times vary because of varying oils and heat settings. I used olive oil in this recipe to keep it healthy. I also did not deep fry the tofu for the same reason. Cook the tofu however you want it. The rule of thumb is to cook it until golden brown.
