For the Crispy Tofu
¼cupcornstarchor potato starch
¼cuppeanut oilor sunflower oil
Marinate the Tofu
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic powder. Pour over the tofu in a shallow dish, then set aside to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
Make the Crispy Tofu
Pour the cornstarch and flour into separate shallow bowls.
Dredge each piece of marinated tofu in the cornstarch and then in the flour.
Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat, making sure that the pan is hot before adding the tofu. To check, wet your fingers under the tap, and flick a few drops of water into the oil. If it sizzles off immediately, the pan is ready. Add the tofu to the pan, making sure that the pieces don’t overlap.
Cook the tofu for 7-8 minutes, until you can see that the bottoms have turned golden brown. Use a spatula to flip them, and cook for another 6-7 minutes, so they’re browned on the other side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels or a clean cloth napkin to drain for a few minutes, then serve immediately.
