This lemongrass tofu might be the best way to enjoy tofu. The lemongrass gives off a lemon aroma and citrus flavor that is unique to Vietnamese cooking. Serve it with steamed white rice and enjoy!
A few notes:
- Some Asian supermarkets sell pre-minced lemongrass in the frozen aisle which is perfectly fine to use for this recipe. If using this type of lemongrass, allow it to thaw and scoop out about 5 tablespoons.
- If avoiding spicy foods, feel free to omit the bird-eye chili pepper. It is very spicy!
- Although firm tofu is used in this recipe, extra firm tofu works just as well.
- For any leftovers or to store as meal prep, store in an airtight container for up to 4 days
