Tofu nuggets can be the main dish of a meal, or they can make a good snack. If you like tofu, you will like tofu nuggets. I find that they grow on you, and it is good to have something to dip them in. I like ketchup, but some people prefer Ranch dressing. This would make a good vegetarian kid's food. To make tofu nuggets, you will need:
- bread crumbs
- firm or extra firm tofu
- blended flax mixture, 2 tbsp flax to 3 tbsp water
- garlic powder
- soy sauce
First you will want to press your tofu to get rid of access water, as it is packed in water.
Once your tofu has drained, cube it like so. You may also want to add a little soy sauce (and toasted sesame oil if desired) to the tofu for extra flavor.
Now, get your bowl of mixed flax seed mixture.
Get your bread crumbs handy. Put about half a teaspoon of garlic powder and cumin in them. I toasted two pieces of bread to make my bread crumbs.
Work with one nugget at a time, dipping it in flax mixture, then dipping it in bread crumbs. Try to get each nugget coated evenly. Pop them into the oven for about 20 minutes. It is good to turn them over 10 minutes into their cooking so they will be a bit crispier.
Here are the tofu nuggets fresh from the oven. Let them cool down for a few minutes. Heat causes them to get a little mushy, so they need to firm back up.
Grab your favorite dipping sauce and some nuggets, and, Enjoy!
