As delicious as french fries may be, it isn't advisable to make them a dietary fixture. If you're seeking a healthy alternative, it's hard to go wrong with these snacks, which are made of high-protein, cholesterol-free tofu.
- 1 pound extra-firm tofu
- Coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Ketchup, mustard, or mayonnaise, for serving
Preheat the broiler. Line baking sheet with a Silpat (a French nonstick baking mat); set aside.
Cut tofu horizontally into four 1/2-inch-thick slabs. Lay tofu flat on a clean kitchen towel. Fold towel over tofu, and press gently to remove excess moisture. Cut each piece lengthwise into six 1/2-inch-wide strips. Place on prepared baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
Place under broiler and cook, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Serve hot, with desired condiments.
