Spicy Tofu

Tasty fried tofu with piquant spices.



  1. Mix the paprika, cumin, coriander, salt and some freshly ground pepper on a plate and spread it out.
  2. Cut tofu in half, then slice each half horizontally to make four pieces. Dip the pieces into the spices, coating them all over.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the tofu and cook until brown and crispy on one side, about 4-5 minutes. Turn the pieces over and cook the other side.
  4. Pour in the lemon juice. Let the mixture sizzle and bubble until the liquid disappears, then serve at once.
  5. Note: Based on the "Spicy Tofu" recipe from recipe from The Vegetarian Low-Carb Diet Cookbook by Rose Elliot.
