Marukan Tofu Tempura with Ponzu Dipping Sauce
Our Marukan Tofu Tempura with Ponzu Dipping Sauce is a quick gluten-free, vegan dish to serve as a snack or meal!
Put 2-3 layers of paper towel on a cutting board and place the tofu block on top. Add 2-3 more layers of paper towel on top of the tofu, place another cutting board on top and add something heavy on it (such as a couple of soup cans). Let sit for 15 minutes to extract the moisture. Pat dry and cut tofu into 16 equal sized pieces.
Pour 2 inches of oil into a heavy pot and heat to 350°. Have a paper towel lined plate nearby.
In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Add in the sparkling water and stir well. Dip the tofu into the tempura batter and carefully lower into the hot oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on the paper towel lined plate.
Pour Marukan Yuzu Ponzu Premium Soy Dressing with Yuzu Citrus in a serving bowl, and add in few pieces of the green onion and sesame seeds. Garnish the tofu with the rest of the green onions and serve. Enjoy!
My daughter love to eat tofu. Will send this to her messenger. Thanks for sharing.
