They look delicious! Compliments to the chef!
There's a Vietnamese restaurant here that prides itself on its Sesame Tofu (delicious deep-fried tofu in a sesame batter). It's delectable but yes dangerous, so I don't visit it often. Comes with what they call "circled broccoli" - first time I ordered it partly because I wanted to find out what circled broccoli was - it was just their awkward but inventive way of saying they've arranged steamed broccoli florets around the tofu like...well, covered wagons in a western!
That's funny. Some exotic kind of broccoli? No, just regular broccoli arranged in a circle!
Now, about the danger, Nate - couldn't you get nearly the same effect with less risks to your health by using a wok? Such is recommended.
I actually did use a wok. A year or so ago I learned how to from this Australian guy when I googled "how to deep fry tofu":http://www.youtube.com/v/-XuBqI2sdas
Last week realized that I currently have the healthiest diet I've probably ever had in my life (medium carbs, low-ish fat, very high protein). The only other fried food I really like to eat is fish and chips, but that doesn't happen very often. The last time I had fish and chips was when I was in New England in July (which reminds me, I need to change that!).
If you do the Drachenburgers ( ) remember to press as much of the water outta the tofu as you can.
Point noted. It's the same with frying it.
If you are attacked by the lazies, you could make my Spicy Stir-fry Tofu Peppers & Mandarin Oranges instead - if you've a wok. Will send the 'receipt' (love the old way of saying recipe).
That would sound good, except I don't like sweet/fruit-flavored sauces
. I think I'll make the tofu burgers next weekend. I have too much going on this weekend! I have a math exam to study for (even though I took the class last year and did well, I'm afraid of fooling myself with that as an excuse for not studying this year and getting very different results), 80+ homeworks to grade, a new homework to make, and my friend is visiting, too! Next weekend I will try and reserve for the drachenburgers.
