Hello, fellas. How’s it going?
This week, I was craving for something spicy (like kimchi nor ramen) but we forgot to bought some, so I just wish I could baked some spicy bread, I’m very much prefer to it. (Hahah!) Just kidding.
Anyway, I keep on searching something I was craving for, until I saw a save pin on my Pinterest Board. A Sisig¹ Tofu, it was a vegan² one (I’ll link the recipe below) since I’m not into vegan so I decided to have some twist. Well of course, I immediately check the fridge if we have some tofu, cause that was the most important ingredient. Then, check the rest of the ingredients, luckily we have them all 😊 (That was actually my face the moment I saw the firm tofu). Don’t worry this was my second time cooking this recipe, I can’t share the first attempt cause it was so devastating. Lols! So, lets prepare all of the ingredients and begin cooking!
550 grams extra firm tofu cut in cubed
3 tablespoons red bell pepper chopped brunoise
2 tablespoons (3 pcs) green long chili peppers chopped diagonally
1 medium red onion chopped fine diced
and cooking oil (for frying, of course)
1/3 cup Mayonnaise (I used the Lady’s Choice cause that’s the one we have. I guess you can use other brands too, it’s still a Mayo ♡)
1 tablespoon Liquid Seasoning (used to Knorr Brand here, I haven’t tried and taste the other brand of liquid seasoning but please if you try this and used the other brand let me know on the comment box)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons water
• Prepare the sauce by combining all the ingredients. Mix well and set aside.
• Heat the oil in a pot.
• Once the oil gets hot, deep fry the cubed tofu until it turns light brown. Remove from the pot and place in a plate with paper towel. Set aside.
• In a separate clean pan. Scoop 1-2 tablespoons of cooking oil from the pot where the tofu was fried.
• Saute onion, bell pepper and the green peppers. Then gradually add the tofu.
• Pour the sauce mixture into the pot. Stir and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes.
As always, Thank you so much for reading. I hope you can make or remake this recipe, and please don’t forget to let me know in the comment section on what & hows your cooking experience with this! 🖤
Stay safe .. and cook that delish recipe. Sending some virtual hugs from Manila, Philippines to you! 🤗
