This is another recipe that I've adapted from 'Deceptively Delicious'. I've omitted certain items from the original recipe and came up with my version of Tofu Nuggets. This is a gorgeous dish, the downside of this dish is that it can take some time and patience in having to turn the tofu around so that all four sides browns nicely, but nevertheless its worth it. This could pass off as chicken nuggets to kids.
1 block of extra firm tofu cut into cubes
1 egg beaten
Salt and Pepper to season the crumbs
Grated Parmesan cheese (Optional)
Place the beaten egg in a separate dish. In another dish, mix the bread crumbs, cheese, salt & pepper together. Dip the tofu cubes into the egg first and then into the crumbs mix. Lightly pan fry on a non-stick skillet.
Tip: Bread crumbs tends to absorb lots of oil, to minimise oil absorption, use an oil spray to coat the pan and go on medium heat. This way the tofu nuggets have an opportunity to get crispier without taking in too much oil.
