Recipe 1: Crispy Pan-Fried Tofu
(My goal is to try at least 100 new-to-me recipes this year. Here's the first.)
Recipe: Crispy Pan-Fried Tofu
Comments: This is barely a recipe - it's one of Bittman's essential techniques - but I had never tried to cook tofu this way before, so I'm counting it. I think it would have worked better with extra firm tofu, and fully drained/pressed tofu at that, but my store only had firm and I was in too much of a hurry to give it much time to drain. And it still worked well! My slices weren't cut as nicely as one might have hoped, but the cooking method itself worked perfectly and the results were quite tasty. I ate some of it right then, and then put the leftovers in a container with barbecue sauce and let it sit in the fridge overnight, and it became a delicious sandwich for lunch the next day. This is one that will definitely be added to my regular cooking rotation.
