Finger Lickin' Tofu Nuggets

There’s some preparation that involves draining and freezing the tofu for 24 hours, so be sure to plan ahead.


1 package (14 oz.) of extra-firm tofu

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. pepper

salt (to taste)

1/2 cup water


- Unwrap tofu and shake off excess moisture; place in freezer bag or wrap well in plastic, then freeze the sealed tofu for at least 24 hours.

- The next day, thaw tofu by placing it (unwrapped) into a microwave-safe bowl; cover the bowl and microwave on high, checking every 2 to 3 minutes to make sure the tofu doesn’t cook; once thoroughly defrosted, gently squeeze out excess moisture & cut into 1" cubes.

- In a shallow bowl, add bread crumbs and spices and mix well; in a separate bowl, pour ½ cup of water.

- Dip each piece of tofu first into the water, lightly shake off any excess water, and then coat with the seasoned bread crumbs.

- Put the breaded cubes on a lightly oiled baking pan and bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.

- Serve with a dipping sauce such as barbecue or spicy mustard.
