About this recipe: This recipe takes 5 minutes and my kids (4 and 2) both love it. Just make sure your tofu is dry (which it should be from rolling in flour) before you fry it. Enjoy x

Serves: 2 

  • 200g firm tofu
  • 30ml soya sauce
  • 2 taplespoons rice flour
  • oil, as needed for cooking
  • 1 (1.5cm) piece root ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 dash sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 spring onion, chopped

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Extra time:30min marinating  ›  Ready in:52min 

  1. Combine the tofu and soya sauce in a dish and allow to marinate for 30 minutes. Drain and reserve the marinade. Pat dry then cut the tofu into bite sized cubes and roll in the flour.
  2. Warm a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the tofu and fry on all sides until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and stir for 1 minute, taking care to not burn.
  3. Place on skewers, drizzle a little sesame oil over the top and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped spring onion.
  4. Use the marinade as a sauce to accompany the tofu skewers.


If your kids don’t like garlic or ginger, just reduce the quantity or omit.


If you do not have rice flour then plain flour works fine too.
