vegetable oil for frying
1 package extra-firm tofu
Pour oil into a large saucepan to a depth of 1 in. and heat to 350. Cut tofu into sticks about 1/2 in. wide and 3 to 4 inches long; pat dry with a towel.
Drop tofu sticks into hot oil, working in batches. They will try to stick like magnets, but after the first minute you should be able to separate them easily with a spoon or spatula. Use a slotted spoon or spatula to gently turn tofu a few times; cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with whatever seasonings you like!
I used seasoning salt, a bit of pepper, and then dipped them in Thai sweet chili sauce. My kids loved them too!
