Crunchy Tofu Nuggets
1 pound extra firm tofu plain or marinated overnight (NOT silken)
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup fine bread crumbs or panko style
1 teaspoon each onion, garlic, pepper, and cayenne powder (or cayenne to taste)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
barbeque sauce or other for dipping
Press tofu to remove water. Slice through horizontally and then lengthwise to make 1/2 inch strips.
Mix dry ingredients together in a shallow bowl. Roll tofu pieces in seasoned crumbs to coat and either place on a baking sheet and cook at 375 for about 10 minutes, flip and cook until golden (about 15 min more) or fry in a half inch of oil until golden brown.
Drain on a paper towel and serve immediately
The tofu doesn’t need to be pre frozen Unless you prefer the consistency.
If seasoning does not stick well, dip pieces in a mixture of water and potato starch (egg replacer).
