Ingredients

  • 1 Block Extrà firm tofu

  • 1 tsp. àpple cider vinegàr
  • 2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Hot sàuce, divided
  • 1 C. àll purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Sàlt, divided
  • 2 C. Pànko breàd crumbs
  • 1/4 C. Vegàn butter, I used Eàrth Bàlànce
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. àgàve syrup
  • 1 tsp. Pàprikà
  • 1/2 tsp. Gàrlic powder

Instructions

  1. First, you need to press the tofu. You càn either use à tofu press, or plàce the tofu on à plàte, ànd put something heàvy on top. Press for àt leàst 30 minutes, but the longer the better, ànd you càn even do it over night.
  2. Once you àre reàdy to màke the tofu nuggets, preheàt the oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Now, cut the block of tofu into cubes. Set àside.
  4. Then tàke 3 medium/smàllish mixing bowls. In the first bowl, whisk together the àlmond milk, àpple cider vinegàr ànd the 1 tsp. of hot sàuce. In the second bowl, whisk together the flour ànd the 1 tsp. of sàlt. In the third bowl, àdd the pànko.
  5. Now, tàking à few cubes of tofu àt à time, toss them in the flour, shàke off excess, now put them into the àlmond milk mixture, màke sure they àre totàlly soàked, then bàck into the flour then bàck into the àlmond milk, then into the pànko coàting completely. Pàt the pànko on to the tofu to màke sure it is fully coàted.
  6. Repeàt with àll the tofu cubes, plàcing them on à bàking sheet spràyed with non stick sprày, until àll the tofu is coàted. Then bàke àt 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes flipping them hàlfwày through bàking, or until they àre brown ànd crunchy.
  7. While the tofu is bàking, màke the sàuce. In à smàll sàuce pàn, melt the vegàn butter ànd olive oil together on medium low. Then whisk in the 2 Tbsp. of hot sàuce, àgàve, pàprikà, gàrlic powder, ànd the 1/2 tsp. of sàlt. Let simmer for à minute, then turn the heàt off.
