Spicy Thai Basil Tofu

Spicy Thai Basil Tofu ?? Otherwise known as ‘Pad Krapow Tofu’ – check out the recipe below!⠀

1 package of firm tofu, drained and mashed⠀⠀
1/2 cup packed Thai basil leaves⠀⠀
7-8 Thai chilies, chopped⠀⠀
5 cloves garlic, minced⠀⠀
3-4 shallots, minced⠀⠀
3 tablespoons coconut amino⠀⠀
1 tablespoon soy sauce⠀⠀
3 tablespoons vegan ‘fish’ sauce*⠀⠀
3 teaspoons coconut sugar⠀⠀
1 teaspoon salt⠀⠀
1 tablespoon avocado oil⠀⠀
Whisk coconut amino, soy sauce, ‘fish’ sauce, sugar and salt in a bowl until well combined, set aside.⠀⠀
In a nonstick pan with low-medium heat (no oil), pan-fry mashed tofu until golden brown to get the chewy texture.⠀⠀
Using the same pan, push tofu aside, add 3 teaspoons oil and sauté garlic and shallots until soft. Add half the sauce, mix with tofu and let simmer for 2 minutes. Then, add chilies and remaining sauce and let the sauce thicken (when sugar caramelized). Finally, stir in basil and serve warm with your favorite grain.⠀⠀
Closest sub that I can think of for fish sauce: 1 tablespoon vegan sugar, juice of 1 lime, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon water, and chopped Thai chilies.
