How to make tofu taste legit
A new series in my attempts to let the tofu non believers know that tofu can in fact taste legit- as long as you bring the flavorz (I'm gonna show you how)!
I posted the video of how I built these nachos on my Instagram : @thedailykale Follow me over there to see my video content ;)
I must say these were 1000 % inspired by Yard House! Yes out of all places, Yard House inspired these damn poke nachos.
Unfortunately I haven’t been to Hawaii and tasted the real deal of what I can only imagine is insanely delicious and refreshing poke! Although I have had another place here in L.A. that I’ve heard is pretty authentic and it’s also really good (Sweetfin). But again, this particular recipe I created was my try at the dish I love to order when we go to Yard House.
*Also can I just mention, it has been my dream since I was a kid to go to Hawaii. So if y’all wanna just put that wish out there for me in the world, I would so appreciate it!
Without further ado, I give you, Poke Nachos.
What you'll need for the nachos:
Rice paper chips
Assembling the nachos:
Remember, The amounts of certain ingredients are completely up to you. I added a little tofu into each rice paper chip. Then added edamame, cabbage, avocado, spicy Mayo, teriyaki glaze, truffle aioli, cilantro, scallions, sesame seeds and the crispy garlic.
If you won’t be eating these immediately I highly recommend not plating these a head of time because the rice paper will become soft with wet ingredients in it for too long. So if you were serving these at a party for example, serve it in a guacamole style/ deconstructed nachos way. Have the chips alone in a bowl and all of the other ingredients separate. Ummm DIY Poke Nacho Party anyone ?! Sounds fun to me !
ENJOY Y’ALL! tag me on Instagram @thedailykale if you make it !!
Rice Paper Chips
(Makes 16 chips )
Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Cut your rice papers into triangles. One rice paper makes 8 chips. Drop in one triangle at a time. It’ll puff up very fast, about 1-2 seconds so take it out fast and tap off the excess oil. I didn’t season these because I am making nachos but by all means if you ever want to make chips or a vegan ‘pork rind’ have fun with your seasoning! I personally think they taste good as is.
