January 21st, 2012. Tofu Cream Cheese Balls
I was trying to think of some creative ways to incorporate tofu into my meal today and thought…. “Hmmm, why not make something bite-sized!”. I rummaged through the fridge and pulled out everything that I felt could be relevant to this idea of a deep-fried tofu mash.
I used this deliciously delicate ready-to-eat raw tofu from Pulmuone and made a mixture of crispy real bacon bits, cream cheese and some parsley for a punch of real herb flavor. I then rolled the balls around in Italian herbed fine breadcrumbs.
Ready to be deep-fried!
They look pretty delish, right? But….I actually didn’t like it as much as i thought i would. I think next time I need to use firmer tofu and perhaps work on the breadcrumb exterior because it kept falling apart while being fried! But it was a good idea 🙂
