The crispy fried tofu recipe-vegan I ever ate was at a friend’s house. It tasted funny and its texture kind of resembled meat but it was a little softer than meat, I enjoyed it. Could not imagine it was meatless.
I had always been a meat-eater since my childhood and disliked vegetables. My mother would always force my siblings and me to eat vegetables. We loathed any meal without meat; we only ate them because we had no choice.
Since I turned to a vegan /plant-based diet I have learned to learn to make a variety of vegan recipes. Tofu is one of those recipes I have learned to make after several failed attempts.
The first gluten-free crispy fried tofu recipe I made was very oily, marshy, and tasted strange.
Probably because I did not drain it. I threw it away because it was inedible. Now I can cook some tasty tofu that my family and I enjoy eating.
My taste buds have since developed a liking for vegan recipes including tofu, and my health has improved too. I make a crispy fried tofu recipe at least once a week, and I like them.
