Stuffed Fried Tofu

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at Use leftover cooked rice for this as you do not need a lot. If making rice for this recipe, plan on having some leftover for other uses.

1 cup cooked highly seasoned rice, such as Cajun Jambalaya Mix
4 cakes fresh tofu
cornstarch or flour for dusting
3-4 tablespoons peanut oil
hot oil or mustard, for a dipping sauce

First cook the rice. If using the Jambalaya Mix, in a batter bowl add contents of package with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 3 cups water. Cover. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, then on half power for 12-15 minutes, or until rice is tender. Cool. In meantime, drain the tofu well in a colander and then on paper towels while the rice cooks. Cut each cake diagonally and then cut out a pocket on the cut side. Dust with the cornstarch. Fill the cavity with some of the rice mixture. Pack smoothly with a knife or with your fingers. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet or wok. When hot enough to give off a haze, place side of the tofu cake down into the oil and pan-fry over medium heat about 6 minutes. Turn the cakes and fry the other side for 2 minutes. Serve hot with a nice sauce drizzled over the top.
