Fried Tofu with a Soy-Lime Dipping Sauce

Tofu is normally not on my regular shopping list but i decided to pick some up to experiment with. After playing around with a few ideas, this fried tofu recipe ended up being one of my favorites.

I coat the cubes of tofu with cornstarch which gives it a really light airy crunch. Pair that with my fresh soy-lime dipping sauce and its a great snack.

Fried Tofu with soy lime dipping sauce

Soy-lime dipping sauce:
Soy sauce
Lime juice
Rice Vinegar

1) Drain all the juice from tofu and pat dry with a paper towel.
2) Cut the tofu into one inch cubes and coat liberally with cornstarch
3) Deep Fry until golden and crisp
4) While the tofu is deep frying, combine all the ingredients to make the dipping sauce. I didn't put measurements so you can make the sauce to taste. I typically put larger quantities of soy sauce and lime juice. If you want your sauce a little sweeter, try adding some honey to the mixture.


  1. ewww...i am not trying this. I think it's something about the soy texture that I dislike. LOL.

  2. did nick eat this? lol i love tofu!!

  3. lol... I'm normally not a tofu girl either but I'm looking for ways to eat healthier (even though the frying didnt help). Yeah nick ate it (*pause-- or unpause?*) but I dont think this will be a regular in our house.
