Crispy Tofu Cubes

with 3 comments


Here are the crispy tofu cubes from ReFresh. I’ve written about the breading before (1/4 c. nutritional yeast plus 2 T. wheat germ plus a little less than a t. garlic powder and a dash of salt and pepper). I did what the book suggested and marinated a pound of tofu, cut into cubes, in 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar, 6 T. tamari, 2 T. water, and 3/4 T. canola oil (they use sunflower) before tossing it in the breading and panfrying.
Also in this picture is some Miso Gravy from the same book, but unlike most of the recipes in this book, the gravy was nothing to write home about. I find a lot of the recipes in this book to be a little high in salt (mostly in the form of tamari) but otherwise, overall, pretty tasty stuff.

  2. I know, right!?! And these were especially crispy, I think because I used the cast iron frying pan.

  3. Okay – I’m on the disappointed list; I just tried to replicate this delicious looking breaded tofu, and I got delicious crispy tofu, and a pan full of oil and breading :- ( What went wrong Jess?
