Foodie Friday: Tofu Nugget Recipe
Welcome to Foodie Friday! This is a favorite recipe in my house- give it a try!
1 package firm tofu
1/4 cup flour (more or less)
2 egg yolks
1 cup fine dry bread or cracker crumbs (mixtures are fun)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 dash or a few grinds of pepper
Cut tofu into your favorite configuration (my toddler likes fingers).
Spread flour on a small plate or flat dish. Beat egg yolks in a
shallow dish. Mix remaining ingredients in shallow dish.
Coat each piece of tofu in the flour to cover, then into the egg, then crumbs, and then to the rack. Chilling will help to set the coating, but you can just bake right away.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until crisp.
Serve with a dipping sauce such as pureed sweet potato or pureed peaches.
