Crispy Tofu Popsicles with Artisan Edibles Rhubarb Sour Cherry Chutney

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)
 1 lb. extra firm tofu
1 jar of Artisan Edibles Rhubarb Sour Cherry Chutney
marinade:
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
pinch of salt
crispy batter:

1 cup flour
Water
2 cups Panko crumbs
0live oil for frying

Mix the marinade and place in a large flat baking dish.
Slice the tofu in long fingers or in large square cubes. Lay the tofu pieces in the marinade for at least an hour, turning from time to time.

Spread half of the flour on a large plate. Place the other half in a deep shallow bowl and add enough water to form a paste. Place the Panko crumbs in a third bowl.
Dredge each marinated tofu piece in the flour, evenly coating each piece. Then dredge each piece through the “flour” paste. Finally dredge each piece through the Panko crumbs, evenly coating all sides.

Heat a large frying pan with vegetable oil and lightly brown all sides of the tofu pieces. When golden, remove from the oil, drain and place on wooden skewers or popsicle sticks. Serve the tofu popsicles with Artisan Edibles Rhubarb Sour Cherry Chutney.
