A blog about living vegan in Brisbane, Australia. I will probably talk vegan food, gardening, general life and maybe a dash of feminism.

Easy caramelised tofu
In our house, there is one tofu recipe that is always popular. This is a simple recipe that I took from the amazing Jennifer of Vegan Lunch Box blog. You fry 500g cubed tofu, add approximately 3 tablespoons of sugar (brown is good, but white will do) and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Fry gently until the liquid is absorbed and the sugar has melted. In the picture above, it is served on rice with stir fried vegetables and peanut sauce.
The kids love this tofu. In fact Z calls it "My favourite tofu."
It is good hot or cold, in salads, added to stir fries, with noodles or in lunch boxes. It even finds favour with a lot of omnis. Thanks Jennifer for an awesome staple for our house.
