Spicy Mayo Sauce


Tofu Balls

  1. First we need to take all the moisture out of the tofu. Take the tofu and drain all the liquid out the packet. Then pat dry with a paper towel.

  2. Next, on a paper-towel-lined cutting board, place the tofu and place another paper towel on top of the tofu. Then place a large flat plate on the top of the tofu; a little weight/heavy. This will help push out remaining moisture outside the tofu. This process can take up to 20 minutes. Tofu right out the packet is too wet to work this recipe.  

  3. Once the tofu is dry enough, break it up in with a fork in a large bowl.

  4. Add eggs, cilantro, scallions, ginger and five-spice powder; mix until well combined.
  5. Slowly stir in cornstarch and shape into golf-ball-size balls and place on parchment paper.
  6. Grab a small saucepan and heat oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F.
  7. Carefully add 3-4 of the tofu bites into the oil. Turn regularly, until golden brown; about 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. Once golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon or skimmer spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  9. Repeat with the remaining tofu bites.

Spicy Mayo Sauce

  1. Combine mayonnaise, Sriracha, minced garlic and five-spice powder in a small bowl until well combined.
