You guys can’t say I don’t love you.
See, I risked my life only to bring you these very awesome™ noodle bowls including THE BEST crispy peanut tofu you’ll ever have. And at the same time: the most dangerous one.
Smokin’ hot oil + clumsy Consuelo = no bueno.
An hour in front of the frying pan and 673 almost trips to the ER later: voilà fried tofu goodness.
The meal you never knew you needed until now. It’s crispy (duh, because I haven’t mentioned it yet: C-R-I-S-P-Y) on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside and jam-packed with peanut flavour and a slight hint of spice. I mean, you can totally omit the spice if that’s not your kinda thang but I happen to have a lifelong crush on chilli peppers so let me roll with it.
I like my life very picante.
Anyway, because I know you’re not here to hear me ramble about my spice preferences (ie: very hawt) and the only thing in life you care about is crispy tofu (no judgement from me), I’m going to quickly shut uppp and tell you how to make the very awesome tofu™.
Though let me tell you more about the bowls before I leave.
See, I like noodles. In all their forms and shapes and funky coloured packages at the Asian section of the supermarket (aka my all time fav) so you bet I had to put a buttload of noodles in them bowls. Although, in defense of this very awesome tofu™, I will say it does not need any more delicious companions at all, as it’s shines enough on its own.
It’s like Narcos on Netflix, like, the series are great enough with Pedro Pascal playing Peña alone BUT I’m not complaining about the new hawt DEA guy they got in season 3.
I mean: who would.
What I’m saying is: add some noodles, let them be the cool hawt DEA guy to your Pedro.
Then, add some greens, fresh basil if you like me are currently buried under a giant pile of it (hashtag summertime probs) and crunchy peanuts, because you can’t ever have too many peanuts. Unless you’re allergic and in that case:
- I’m sorry for you poor soul
- I know these bowls look good but please don’t be like clumsy Consuelo and risk your life for them
- If you can eat other nuts (although peanuts are legumes actually, here’s your fun fact™ of the day, use almond butter and crushed almonds instead
- If it’s all nuts you’re allergic to, again, I’m sorry but I hope you can enjoy these two recipes for very awesome nuggets: 1 – 2.
And that’s it for the day, my friends! I hope you enjoy these nuggets of goodness as much as I did. Which was a lot. They lasted like… seconds after I took the pic.
Hope you guys enjoy this recipe! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @earthlytaste if you try it!
