Yes, you read that headline right. You can make a delicious meal with tofu! I know you’re probably skeptical, and thinking ‘hey HAPARI, there’s no way you can make me like tofu’, but before you deny it, you’ve got to try it!

As a vegetarian, I’ve grown to love tofu! It took a while to discover the best way to eat it, but once I did, I’ve been obsessed. Tofu is incredibly healthy for you; In fact, it’s made of pure soybeans and is a high in protein and calcium. And unlike meat, tofu has no fat in it! It’s a pure protein source and is designed to absorb surrounding flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1 12-ounce package of extra-firm Mori-nu silken to
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • coconut oil cooking spray

Directions
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line your baking sheets with foil or parchment paper and lightly coat the bottom with cooking spray and set aside.

Cut the tofu into nugget cubes (or desired shapes). Wrap the tofu in paper towels and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, until moisture is absorbed. Unwrap and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the panko crumbs, garlic powder, chili and salt until well combined. In another small bowl, lightly scramble an egg. Dip the tofu nuggets in the egg mixture then dip into the panko mixture, coating on all sides. Place the tofu on your prepared baking sheet.

Bake the nuggets for about 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Allow to cool. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: makes 2-3 servings
