Simple Amazing Roasted Tofu Cubes
I can not express to you how much you should make these tofu cubes…..they are SO easy and SO satisfying. You can literally toss them with any spice mix and will come out incredible. I have not had chicken in over 25 years, but if I were to need to fill that craving, this would be it. My mom used to make chicken wings using Krazy Mixed Up Salt and that’s what these remind me of. I’m gonna have to buy the salt and actually try using it! If you can save some to eat cold try OR double the recipe so you can be sure not to eat them all straight out of the oven. Don’t overcrowd the baking dish so the tofu can take on a crisped edge. So amazing for a quick protein fix! It literally takes 2 minutes to get into the oven., no fussing at all, no stirring no nothing…Feel free to change up the spices but for serious….MAKE THEM NOW.
1 Pound tofu, drained, rinsed and pressed
2-4T Olive oil- (more oil more crunch)
1/2t smoked chipotle powder
1/2t pink salt or smoked sea salt
Fresh cracked black pepper
1T nutritional yeast
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a roasting pan or dish, drizzle about 2T of olive oil on the bottom of the pan.
After pressing the tofu, cut it into cubes, about 1” in size.
Place the cubes in the pan, then drizzle with the remaining oil. Sprinkle with the nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and chipotle powder.
Roast in the oven/ convection oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
This tofu is absolutely delicious, hot OR cold.
