BAKED TOFU NUGGETS RECIPE

Posted on

Ingredients

  • (2) 14-16 oz extra-firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup tamari (or soy sauce if not gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ketcup, barbecue sauce, mustard for dipping

Instructions

  1. Press the tofu: Line your counter or a plate with a few paper towels. Place the tofu block on top, add a few more layers of paper towel on top, then place something heavy on top. I use my small cast iron pan. You can also use a plate with a few cans on top, or a heavy book or 2. Let the tofu press for at least 15 minutes to remove excess water, and up to an hour.*
  2. Slice the tofu into 1/2 inch thick strips, and place in a large bowl. Drizzle the soy sauce over the tofu and allow to marinate while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Mix the flour, cornmeal, salt and seasonings in a medium bowl. Coat the marinated tofu strips with the dry mixture and place on baking sheet, one by one.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then carefully turn the tofu fingers over and bake for 20 minutes more.
  6. Serve with ketchup, barbecue sauce or mustard and with a side of fries for a super kid-friendly and fun dinner!
