Ingredients

  • 1 12-oz pkg extra-firm organic tofu
  • 3 tbsp white miso paste
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • ⅛ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp potato starch
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Preparation

  1. Blot tofu with paper towel. Place between 2 plates and weight down with a cookbook or can of beans for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare dipping sauce: In a bowl, whisk together miso paste, peanut butter, lime juice, honey and cayenne with 2 tbsp water, or to desired consistency. Set aside.
  3. Slice pressed tofu into ½-inch sticks, resembling fries. Mix potato starch and pepper together on a plate. Roll tofu sticks through potato starch mixture to evenly coat.
  4. In a large cast iron skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Working in batches, cook tofu sticks until golden brown on all sides, flipping with tongs, 45 to 60 seconds per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while cooking remaining tofu.
  5. Serve warm with dipping sauce.
