Crispy Tofu Recipe
Last year my oldest wanted to give the vegetarian way of life a try. He tried it for a full year and has decided that even though he will not become vegetarian, there are many vegetarian products that he will continue to enjoy. One of those many products is tofu. Last year we shared with you a delicious Tofu “Meatballs” recipe that is still a family favorite. Another of our favorites is the recipe I am sharing with you today.
Tofu was not something that was new for us, we have always enjoyed it since I have eaten it throughout my teen and adult years. And Nasoya is definitely our brand of choice. I like that they have been a long-time leader in the tofu space, offering people plant-based protein options that are nutritious and convenient. Nasoya’s leading tofu products include Organic Extra Firm Tofu, Super Firm Organic Tofu, Organic Silken Tofu, and Organic Sprouted Super Firm Tofu. These products offer a wide range of textures and suit a variety of dishes, from smoothies to stir-fries and more!
While tofu may seem intimidating to some, it’s actually a convenient and healthy protein option that easily takes on the flavor and can be incorporated into a wide variety of simple meals, from soups and salads to stir-frys and noodle dishes. By quickly marinating and seasoning tofu using your favorite sauces or spices, it becomes a flavorful, tasty addition to any meal.
In today’s recipe, we will be using Nasoya’s Extra Firm Tofu. One of the things I love about this crispy tofu is how versatile it is. Some time’s we’ll have it in tacos, as the protein in salads, or just with a side of veggies. I hope that you’ll enjoy this easy and delicious recipe as much as we do.
1 16oz block of Nasoya Extra-Firm or Super Firm Organic Tofu
1 & 1/2 tsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
4 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/2-1 tsp Cumin (to taste but at least use 1/2 tsp)
1 tsp Cayanne Pepper (optional feel free to omit or use more or less)
1. Drain the tofu and wrap it in a clean kitchen towel. Weigh it down with either a heavy pan or a large can to remove extra liquid for at least 30 minutes.
2. In a bowl whisk together all your ingredients. Once everything is well-combined, add in the tofu which should be cut into 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes.
3. Place in refridgerator and marinate for 30 minutes.
4. Pre-heat your oven to 400° F and grease a baking sheet with olive oil or line with parchment paper.
5. After the tofu has marinated place them evenly to the baking sheet.
6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the tofu is golden. Be sure to flip halfway through the cooking time.
