4 servings

Ingredients

900g extra-firm  

(For the marinade):

1 tbsp miso

180ml hot water

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp liquid smoke

1 tsp powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp pink salt

For the breading:

2 tbsp cornflour

120ml unsweetened almond or milk

60g breadcrumbs

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp onion powder

¾ tsp pink salt

½ tsp powder

How to prepare it:

Start by marinating the tofu. Break the blocks in half, width-wise, and then cut them into cubes, 2.5- 3 cm.

 Make the marinade: add the miso to a medium bowl with a splash of hot water and whisk to combine. Add the remaining hot water, Dijon, liquid smoke, garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt. Add the cubes and let marinate for at least 10 minutes. Stir gently with a spatula from time to time to ensure all pieces are well marinated.

To bread the tofu. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Add cornflour to a medium shallow bowl, add a splash of almond or milk and whisk to combine. Pour in the remaining milk, little by little while whisking, to make a thick milky mixture.

 In a separate bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, sea salt, and garlic powder.

Dip the marinated in the milky mixture and then roll in the breadcrumbs to coat. Place the breaded tofu on the prepared baking tray. Continue until you’ve rolled all the tofu in the breaded mixture

Bake the nuggets for 15 minutes until lightly golden. Flip and bake the other side for 10 more minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Serve with ketchup, BBQ sauce, or plum sauce for dipping.
