Fried Tofu and Brown Rice

20130102-165232.jpg

This dish is made from firm tofu and brown rice. The versatility of tofu allows it to be used in soups, stir frys, etc. In this dish it was seasoned with cornmeal, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne. It was then fried in extra virgin olive oil until brown and slightly crispy. Various recipes suggest frying in canola or vegetable oil, but olive oil is a slightly healthier option because it includes more unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. However, too much of it can be dangerous. As always, moderation is important. I also used brown rice as a slightly healthier option to white rice. This is a light snack that for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Enjoy.
