BM #88 Week 1 Day 3 - 

The third Tofu recipe has become one of our favorites. The almond crusted tofu came out really good. The crunch of the almonds and the marinated tofu married well together. I served them with a sour cream-avocado dip (recipe coming up soon).

It was a bit disappointing that the ingredients fell short for the tofu I had on hand. But we enjoy tofu in all its variety so it was okay in the end. 

Recipe Inspiration here
Ingredients - 

*Tofu, sliced into finger shapes 14 oz pack
Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Flax Egg - 1 Tbsp Flax meal mixed in 3 Tbsp of warm water
For the Almond Crust - 
Almonds coarsely powdered 1 cup
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Red Chili Powder to taste
For Tofu Marinade - 
Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp
Olive Oil 1 Tbsp
Garlic, grated 1 tsp
Salt as needed

* The flax egg and almond mixture were just sufficient for 7 oz of tofu. I baked the remaining marinated tofu as is, without the almond crust

Method Of Preparation -

Drain the Tofu and slice them into fingers. In a ziploc bag add in the marinade ingredients and toss the tofu fingers. Seal the bag and shake it well so that all tofu fingers are coated with the marinade. Set aside for 30 minutes.

Coarsely crush the almonds. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and red chili powder. Mix well.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Drain the marinated tofu, roll each tofu in the dry flour, dip it in the flax egg, roll in the almond mixture, arrange it on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake it for 10 minutes and flip them and bake for another 10 minutes until the almonds turn a shade of pink.

Remove and serve it with any dipping sauce of your choice.


Preparation Time 20 minutes + Baking Time 20 minutes
