Ch’cken nuggets

I rarely make anything with tofu, but this is one of my favorite ways to use it when I do buy it!


• 1 block of firm tofu, pressed, cubed.

The marinade:

  • 3/4 cup plant milk (preferably oat).
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice.
  • Pinch of black pepper.
  • 1/2 tsp paprika.
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

The breading:

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch or tapioca starch.
  • 1 tsp paprika.
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder.
  • Sea salt to taste.
  • Pinch of black pepper.


• 1 cup bread crumbs.


Combine the marinade ingredients and marinate the cubed tofu for about 2 hours. Do not drain the marinade. Combine the breading in a small bowl and in a second bowl place the bread crumbs. Roll the marinated tofu in the cornstarch mixture then back into the marinade and lastly into the breadcrumbs. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
