Baked Tofu Bites

If you don’t cook with tofu, this may be the time to start! Tofu is super versatile – it’s literally a sponge that absorbs any flavors you add to it. Personally, I don’t love the squishy texture of raw tofu, so I like to bake or pan-fry it so it has a crispier texture. This is an easy recipe that only includes 3 ingredients – a perfect protein-packed snack!

First, you’ll need to press the water out of the block of tofu. I use two dinner plates weighted down with cans to press tofu. The longer the better, but an hour is sufficient to get most of the water out of the tofu. You’ll need to replace the paper towels at some point. Then, cut the tofu into cubes or strips and toss with the tamari and nutritional yeast. Baking the tofu bites makes them nice and crispy, perfect to dip in your favorite sauce!
