how veganism changed my body :
tofu has got such a bad rep. and it’s completely undeserved !
i admit, first time i ate tofu i was disappointed. i had hyped it in my mind to such an extent, then i went and bought silken tofu and tried to pan fry it.
it was a miserable fail.
but after that first attempt, me and tofu are now enjoying a stable and rewarding love affair.
there are few things in this life that get me going as much as tofu. vegan cliché? who cares !
in this video i show you how i normally cook tofu. you might be surprised how incredibly EASY it is to make these delicious golden flavourful pieces of yumminess.
besides from the tofu itself, i’m only using 3 other ingredients – that you probably already have in the kitchen !
plus it only takes about 10 minutes to cook – what’s not to love ?

btw, how cute are my new plates that house doctor sponsored me with ? (

hey guys today we are talking about the most important thing in the world Tolu seems like a lot of people have problems knowing how to cook tofu and the thing is it's so incredibly easy to make like crispy delicious salty little pieces of heaven and over the years I've been cooking so much of the stuff that I'm so – becoming something of a tofu expert so I'm going to shock you with how simple this is and it's going to be delicious let's go now there are like a hundred different type of tofu and a hundred different ways of cooking tofu I'm going to stick with a basic series I'm using a firm organic tofu good thing about buying tofu that's organic is that is usually for us Europeans is you should be made in Europe so it's much better for the environment than the non-organic stuff and so let's start by just like slicing these into really thin pieces today we're going to fry our tofu which is just the simplest and easiest way to do it in my opinion we're going to use a tiny little smudge of oil so if you're not eating oil I have a baked tofu recipe as well that I made a video so I can put a link in description for base tofu if you don't want to use any oil but I don't mind using a little bit of oil just to make the pad nonstick so we're using that today I've also heard that salt makes the pan more nonstick I'm not sure if that's true this is something I've heard so I like using a little bit of salt in the bottom of the pan as well and then you set a little bit of oil you don't want to use too much because it will ruin the taste of the tofu in my opinion that's enough we want to use quite high please don't name is like crazy ID but I was a medium to high so and I just wait for the time to be completed before we have it can you hear this sizzling mmm anyway here's the trick now you want you to leave it don't go off something over down because that will make them stick what you want to do is just keep them going until the pan looks dry that's when you flip them over and you will have a lovely golden crispy surface on them so let's just wait don't stress them let the heat do its magic are you ready let's try it see if you're done oh yeah those could all have golden deliciousness that's how it should be none of so me as you can see they're quite like firm so they're not so way they're not like too oily okay so now how does it lick them the way I like to season them is very very simple it's just with salt to make a bit salty force and then with the white pepper and that's it just salt and white pepper the salt I like to use at the very very end because the saltiness will like a flavor the salt will disappear if you heat it so I like to use salt just when they're done add white pepper I like to add now on the like on the bright side so don't be shy with the white pepper so now let's leave them again I reduce the heat a little bit because otherwise they might burn on the other side so medium heat I would say and I'll guess that I usually have them on like five minutes per side or five minutes on the first side and then once I put there maybe three to four minutes actually I haven't timed it but just have a look once in a while and see because it of course it depends on the heat you're using in the pan you're using in everything like that so and they are done so what I like to do now is just better cool off a little bit because that makes it easier if you want to cut them I might just keep dating with size but if you want to have like smaller pieces of tofu I still recommend making them about this size because it's much easier to flip them over and deal with them in the pan and then you can cut them when they're cooled off wait a few minutes so how long's they're done it's time to just add some salt and I like to go and little bit crazy with salt and tofu because I think it's one of those things that you really want to have enough salt on them so okay guys thank you for tuning in I wish I could share this with you but unfortunately I'm going to eat it all myself so give me a thumbs up if you like this video and don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already and see you in my next one take care bye
