A note about serious food allergies

Crispy and fresh come together here for pure yumminess and delight. You'll crisp the tofu to "crunch on the outside, soft on the inside" perfection, and give them a twist of teriyaki. The fresh comes from pickled cucumber. "Those are pickles," you say. Au contraire! These are a crispy, plucky, additional delight.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 11/4 cups water to a boil.

    Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Remove from burner and set aside.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim cucumber and thinly slice into rounds.

    Juice lime.

    Coarsely chop ginger.

    Thinly slice green onions on an angle.

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Cut tofu into 1" dice and place on towel-lined plate. Top with paper towels, then press gently but firmly to remove excess moisture.

  3. 3

    Pickle the Cucumber

    Combine lime juice, 2 tsp. water, and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until sugar dissolves, 30-45 seconds.

    Remove from microwave. Add cucumber and stir to combine. Set aside to pickle, 15 minutes.

  4. 4

    Cook the Tofu

    Place tofu, tempura mix, and panko in a mixing bowl. Stir gently until tofu is evenly coated.

    Line another plate with a paper towel.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Add tofu to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden-brown, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer tofu to towel-lined plate.
