Yes, I am still trying to use the rice Burmese Tofu as a fish replacer. This time was the closest so far.
For those of you that have not been following this saga (as it were). The first try was to replace the tofu in this recipe with the rice tofu, but change nothing else. It worked, kind of. Another try was to season the rice tofu before it set up. That was a crash and burn, since the miso caused the rice-fu not to set. And another try was an attempt to marinade the rice-fu, also a crash and burn. This time, the attempt was influenced by this recipe:
1/3 batch rice Burmese tofu, smashed after setting up
1/4 cup diced onion
1 tsp chickpea miso
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, grated
1/4 cup quick oats, ground (turns into oat flour)
edit: added oat flour to what was left over from this batch and it seemed to do the trick, apparently still some moisture in the rice-fu after setting, amount is just a guess for now, will have to make another batch to get accurate measures, also need to add more miso but garlic and ginger may not change, making rest of batch tomorrow but will bake this time
Combine the onion, miso, garlic and ginger in a small food processor/blender. Blend till combined. Mix the paste into the smashed tofu, till blended evenly. Take 1/3 cup and make into patties. Coat in breadcrumbs (mixed with optional seafood seasoning). Fry in skillet.
It tasted a bit like fish, but had to much ginger in it and maybe not enough miso and onion. They also did not stick well together while either cooking in the oven (tried first) or when pan frying. I still have some of the mix left and will add some oat flour to it, to see if that solves the problem. I also need to make the cakes earlier and let them sit in the refrigerator to firm up a bit before cooking. If these steps don’t work, then I have another idea to try. Unfortunately, I currently do not have enough rice flour to make another batch. So it might have to wait for a week or two. However, I have found anther recipe for the rice flour Homemade Rice Milk Base. (vegetation are you paying attention).
P.S. This is vegetarian, since I am still trying to use up some old bread crumbs.
