Spicy Fried Tofu


  • 1 pound tofu
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Drain tofu, pat dry, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  2. Heat oil and sauté tofu over high heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour out excess water, reduce heat, and add turmeric; stir until tofu is uniformly yellow and add basil, thyme, cumin and curry powder. Add garlic (and a little more oil to prevent sticking, if needed). Increase heat; then add soy sauce. Sauté until golden brown.
  4. Serve either in pita bread or in rolled-up tortillas with shredded lettuce and Cheddar cheese. Use any of your favorite toppings.

Yield: 2 to 3 generous servings
