I'm the biggest fan of tofu when done properly. Crispy tofu is the best way to eat it in my opinion, and the steps to make it are always the same for me. I cut the tofu into cubes and coat with cornstarch, then fry it on a pan or air-fry. From there the options are endless! You can add it to any dish or sauce of your choice. For this recipe, I fried it up with some green scallions and covered them with chili oil. Served on vermicelli noodles or rice with some soy sauce - it's as easy as that!
