  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 32 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 15 oz. package extra firm tofu
  • 40 to 45 Almond Nut Thins crackers
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red chili powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • ½ cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Use tofu press to press tofu, if you don’t have one, this method works. Place drained tofu on baking sheet lined with a kitchen towel and paper towels, place more paper towels and kitchen towel on top of tofu. Place another baking sheet on top, with a heavy skillet in pan, allow tofu to press for about 15 minutes.
  2. While tofu is being pressed, place crackers in a zip bag and crush with rolling pin. When crackers are all crushed add garlic, onion, chipotle, red pepper and salt to zip bag and mix well.
  3. Empty crushed cracker mix in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. In another small bowl, mix ground flax seed and warm water until well combined.
  5. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and spray baking rack with cooking oil and place in baking pan, set aside.
  6. Take pressed tofu and cut into 1 inch cubes.
  7. Whisk flax mixture to assure it’s well combined, dip tofu into flax, then into crumbs, place on rack. I use a rack so I don’t have to turn the tofu during the cooking time. If you don’t have a rack, use a parchment lined pan and turn your tofu halfway through cooking time.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes. While tofu bakes prepare dipping sauce.(recipe below)
  9. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
