🔪Prep Time: 5 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 mins


10 oz firm tofu

1/3 cup cornstarch

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp Sichuan peppercorns

2 tbsp sesame oil, to serve

1 large red chilli, de-seeded and chopped


1Wrap it in a kitchen towel and place a heavy object on top. Set aside for 10 minutes.

2Mix together cornstarch, salt and crushed Sichuan peppercorns. Feel free to also add other spices of your choice, such as paprika or cayenne pepper.

3Cut the tofu either into rectangular slabs or cubes, depending on personal preference. Transfer the cornstarch mixture to a plate or flat surface, and coat the tofu evenly on all sides.

4Heat the vegan butter in a large frying pan or skillet. Add the tofu in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for 3-4 minutes more, until evenly crispy and golden brown.

5To serve, heat the sesame oil in a frying pan or skillet and add the chilli. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then drizzle over the tofu.
