Tofu Firecrackers


  • 1 Pound Soft or Firm Pressed Tofu
  • 1 Bottle Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Cold Sparkling Water
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • Soybean Oil as Needed for Deep-Frying



  1. Cut tofu into dice-sized cubes.
  2. Place tofu and hot sauce in a bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4-24 hours. Stir periodically.
  3. To make tempura, mix eggs and water into a large bowl. Add flour and mix just until incorporated. If the tempura is too thin, add more flour. If it is too thick, add more water.
  4. Remove tofu from the hot sauce. Coat tofu with tempura and deep fry in 350 degree Fahrenheit soybean oil.
