Tofu Sisig, the miss fits style

Last night, I found myself amused by the fact that I've been a vegetarian for three years already. It doesn't even feel that long! Well, before I became vegetarian, I used to be a really good cook but since vegetarianism has limited my options, I started feeling lazy to cook. Well, by some force, I found myself craving a really hearty Tofu meal so I decided to try cooking Tofu Sisig!

The meal was so successful I decided to share it all with you. It doesn't matter if you're vegetarian or not, you HAVE to try this. So incredible!

Here's what you need:
1-2 blocks of Tofu (depending on what's available. I used 2)
1/8 cup Knorr Liquid Seasoning
1/8 cup Balsamic Vinegar
Chopped Red Onions (same amount as your tofu)
Dried/Fresh Chili
Cooking Oil

5-step meal:

1. Deep fry Tofu squares
 2. Dice onions, same amount as your tofu. (chop your tofu too into smaller bits)
3. In a pan, add the two ingredients together and fry until the onions caramelize (it's when they turn translucent)
4. Add the 1/8 cup liquid seasoning and 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar.
5. Add some chopped chilis, amount depending on your preference. I chose dried chilis for this dish because it has a more rustic and deeper spicy flavor which I like. Add salt and pepper to taste.
SERVE with brown rice and a dullop of mayonnaise. You could opt NOT to add mayo but I think it adds that sinful dimension to the dish and makes it so much more interesting!

Yum! You have to taste this to believe it! The flavor is just awesome, If I didn't cook this myself, I would think it contained meat! So flavorful!


  1. Wow Nin! The tofu looks like chicken. I wish I knew how to cook..maybe one of these days I'll learn how to. ;)

  2. This looks dangerously delicious! Beer + tofu, yum! lol well I’m going to try this one.Hoping to learn more from you.Thanks

  3. @soan: haha, it does? this one doesn't even taste like tofu at all! so good! you should invite me over, then let's cook! haha

    @paige: hahaha! yes, I guess it would be perfect with beer, though I don't really drink :P tell us how your dish went after you cook it k? ;)
