I have a big problem with burritos. Actually, I have a big problem with Moe’s burritos. They have a smartphone app that makes ordering them way too easy. You not only get to see all the topping options, but you get to pay ahead and cut the entire line to pick up your food! It is too easy, and this has not been good for my waistline. But their tofu is just way too good to say goodbye to, so off to the internet I went to find out their “secret” to get those perfect black crispies on the outside! THEIR SIGNATURE SALAD DRESSING?? REALLY?? That’s it?? Well, sorry Moe’s but I can do that myself!!
- 1/2 block extra firm tofu, pressed into oblivion
- Cooking oil spray for the pan
- Your favorite vinaigrette or oil based salad dressing. I used Annie’s Tuscan Italian dressing.
Cut your tofu into tiny 1/2 inch cubes, bite sizes pieces if you will. Spray down a pan with a little Pam, and heat it up to medium high heat. Toss in your cubes and try your best to brown them on all sides, about 6-8 minutes. Then add a few good shakes of your dressing, about 2 tbsp. Lower the heat a bit, but either way, it is going to cause a splashy mess on your cook top. Thems the breaks. Toss your tofu around a bit until all pieces are coated and brown bits start to form. Store in an air tight container and use as needed. I put it in low carb burrito wraps with re fried beans and daiya jack shreds. It would also make a really good salad topper! Put it in what ever you want, really!
