Dirt Candy: fried yuba skins, and other delights

Last week I had familiar tasks: press, poach, and skin the tofu; slice the celery; mandoline the ginger; dice the cucumber, hearts of palm, and Chinese chives, and mix it all with the salsify; and the brunoise.

Another day at Dirt Candy means another ridiculously delicious family meal.

Peas, cauliflower, peppers, onions, seared tofu, tossed with vermicelli noodles and topped with fried yuba.

Let us consider for a moment: fried yuba.

The ultimate in crispy, savoury goodness.  And it comes from tofu, so it must be good for you, right?

To make matters even more lip-smacking, there was a mis-cut slice of the sweet pea-mint nanaimo bar from the previous night’s service in the freezer that needed to be eaten.  I was only too happy to volunteer myself for the task.

Oh yes, that was a good family.
