  • 16 oz tofu, super firm ,cubed
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • .5 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp agave
  • 1 tsp worcestershire
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp poultry seasons
  1. Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside. 

  2. Drain and press the tofu.  The firmer the tofu the better.  I use the super dence from Trader Joe's and I'll never look back!

  3. Whisk all the wet ingredients together in a large bowl.  Toss the tofu in and get them all covered. 

  4. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl with a cover.  Add the tofu and lightly shake to coat all the nugs. 

  5. Dump the nuggets out onto the baking sheet and move them so they aren't overlapping.  

  6. Cook nuggets for 20 minutes.  Turn oven off and leave them in there for another 10-20.  This is what gets them extra crispy! 

  7. Serve with dips, or toss with buffalo/barbeque sauce.  Whatever you want, these nuggets are versatile!
