Crispy Tofu Nuggets [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
These tofu nuggets are a vegan twist on a traditional favorite and beat the fast food variety any day. If you don’t want to deep fry them, you can also fry them in a skillet until golden brown. The curry ketchup is a unique dipping sauce that packs a punch and perfectly complements the dish. It also goes great with your morning tofu scramble eggs!

Crispy Tofu Nuggets [Vegan]

Dairy FreeKid-FriendlyVegan

Serves

2

Ingredients

For the Tofu Nuggets

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (65 g)
  • 1 teaspoon raw cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2¾ cups unsweetened cornflakes (100 g)
  • 14 ounces tofu (400 g)
  • 2 cups vegetable oil (500 mL)

For the Curry Ketchup

  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • ⅔ cup tomato paste (140 g)
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

 

Preparation

For the Tofu Nuggets

  1. Stir the flour together with the raw cane sugar, sea salt, and 6 tablespoons (90 mL) water until the batter is smooth.
  2. Finely crumble the cornflakes.
  3. Cut the tofu into slices that are just under ½ inch (1 cm), and then use a knife to shape the tofu into nuggets.
  4. Dip the nuggets in the batter and then coat them with the cornflakes.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a small saucepan. (You’ll know the oil is hot enough if you dip a wooden toothpick into the oil and small bubbles float up to the top around the toothpick.)
  6. Fry the nuggets for approx. 3 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

For the Curry Ketchup

  1. Mix all of the ingredients with 3 tablespoons water.
  2. Serve with the nuggets.

Nope. Soy is actually really good for you. There\'s a lot of misinformation out there. Don\'t pay attention to it.
