Crunchy & Spicy Baked Tofu Nuggets

Unfortunately I haven’t been eating the healthiest lately. It must be from the weather getting colder and I’ve been craving Fall comfort food. To get back on track, these veggie nuggets are one of the recipes I experimented with using Mori-Nu Tofu, a silken tofu that’s a smooth, delicate variety of tofu. It’s never pressed or drained so the texture is very creamy and custard-like. Tofu is low in fat, gluten-free and a good source of protein so it’s perfect as an appetizer or side dish.

The Mori-Nu Tofu packaging is so convenient because you don’t have to refrigerate, it has a long shelf life of one year without refrigeration. It’s also made with non-GMO soy and verified Non-GMO. The tofu comes in 6 varieties in different firmness and function. For this recipe make sure you use extra firm tofu so the nuggets are easy to handle and keep their shape. I baked the tofu nuggets with a light coating of coconut oil spray, but use any type of cooking spray. Serve them as a side next to a flavorful salad or as a guilt-free appetizer on their own!

Crunchy Spicy Baked Tofu Nuggets

1 12-ounce package of extra-firm Mori-nu silken to
1 cup panko crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
coconut oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line your baking sheets with foil or parchment paper and lightly coat the bottom with cooking spray and set aside.

Cut the tofu into nugget cubes (or desired shapes). Wrap the tofu in paper towels and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, until moisture is absorbed. Unwrap and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the panko crumbs, garlic powder, chili and salt until well combined. In another small bowl, lightly scramble an egg. Dip the tofu nuggets in the egg mixture then dip into the panko mixture, coating on all sides. Place the tofu on your prepared baking sheet.

Bake the nuggets for about 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Allow to cool. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Total Time: 45 minutes
