Vegan crisp tofu skin fingers with spicy honey-lemon-ginger sauce Crisp tofu skin fingers with spicy honey-lemon-ginger sauce

If you like munching, if you like something crisp to dip into a sauce, if you like an explosion of flavors and textures in your mouth, this is for you. Be warned though that it is unlike most munchies you may have tried in the part. These are tofu skins cut into “fingers” paired with a sweet-spicy-tangy sauce that screams Asia every which way.

Tofu skins are available wherever vegetarian food stuffs are sold. We buy ours from Palomi at the corner or San Marcelino and Quirino Avenues in Manila. The no-cook sauce is made with Asian pantry staples. Crisp tofu skin fingers with spicy honey-lemon-ginger sauce

    Hi Connie,

    Is Palomi and Daily Care Food Mart one and the same store? The latter is at the corner of San Marcelino and Quirino Ave. across from Caltex.

    Hi Ms. Connie! Thank you for sharing your recipes and food discoveries with us. I was just wondering if you know of a place where they sell tempeh here in Manila? I love fried tempeh but could not find it in the groceries I have gone to. Thanks again!

        Such a tart reply! It is relevant in the sense that you’re serving a vegetarian appetiser. Tempeh is another vegetarian snack/protein option FYI.

          Hello, Nina. I know what tempeh is. And it is irrelevant to the post. Your comment is doubly irrelevant so that’s the last you’re going to post on my blog.
