Battered Tofu with Dill Mayonnaise

I can't really claim this recipe as such because I used a packet batter mix but it was so easy and so delicious! I used Vitarium Gluten Free Batter Mix which also happens to be vegan! All you do is add water and it tasted amazing. These were great hot and cold. Great for a snack, for a main or on sandwiches.



Battered Tofu with Dill Mayonnaise

Ingredients

1 packet of Vitarium Gluten Free Batter Mix
1 Tbls lemon pepper
1 400g block of firm tofu
Oil for frying (amount will vary depending on whether you want to shallow or deep fry)


Dill Mayonnaise

1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (I used Praise 99% fat free)
1/4 cup chopped dill
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.


Method

In a large frying pan (or deep fryer) heat the oil till boiling then turn down to medium-high.
Make up batter according to the packet instructions (basically just add water to the consistency you want)
Stir in lemon pepper and mix well.
Press the tofu on a board of the sink to release any excess water.
Slice tofu into sticks (around 2 inches thick) and add a few at a time to the batter mixture.
Place batter coated sticks in frying pan (try not to let them touch as they will stick together) and fry until golden on one side then flip and do the other side.
When done place on paper towel to soak up excess oil.
You may need to do a couple of batches.
Serve with dill mayonnaise.
