Tofu Nuggets

  • 1 block (350g) Sunrise extra-firm tofu drained and patted dry
  • 2 large eggs whisked
  • 1/2 tablespoon tamari sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds I like mixing black and white
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Dipping Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure liquid honey
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 425℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Lightly spray with avocado oil. Set aside
  • Cut the tofu in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 8 equally-sized squares. You should end up with 16 squares.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and tamari sauce.
  • In a separate shallow bowl, add the brown rice.
  • In a third shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, sesame seeds, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper.
  • First, coat the tofu nugget in brown rice flour. Next, dunk in eggs and then generously coat in seasoned bread crumbs. Then, place on a prepared baking sheet, leaving room in between each piece.
  • Spray top with avocado oil, bake for 20 minutes or until golden and crispy. Flip
    halfway, spraying again with avocado oil.
  • While the nuggets are baking, prepare the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, sriracha sauce, honey, and lime juice.
  • Serve the nuggets with dipping sauce and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
