These healthy, vegan tofu nuggets are not only oil-free and super crispy, but they also have the perfect chewy texture! For this recipe, the tofu is baked in the oven instead of fried. This also makes the whole process of preparing them much easier!

To make the tofu nuggets, you first let them soak in a wet mixture so they dont dry up during baking. The wet mixture is simply a vegan buttermilk, which you can make by combining soy milk and lemon juice. Soy milk works best for this as its richest in proteins.

The wet mixture is also what makes the dry mixture stick to the tofu. For the dry mixture, you can use any variation of bread crumbs, nutritional yeast, almond meal, shredded coconut, and spices. When you add the tofu cubes to the dry mixture, it helps to use a fork and tap it on the bowl a few times. This way, the excess soy milk stays in the wet mixture bowl and doesnt clump the dry mixture.

The trick to getting these healthy vegan tofu nuggets super crispy without using oil is a high oven temperature. So before you even begin breading the nuggets, preheat your oven to 230C/450F.

When you flip the tofu nuggets halfway through baking, be careful and again, use a fork. Gently lift each nugget with the fork so that the breadcrumb coating doesnt remain stuck to the baking paper.

You can totally serve these tofu nuggets on their own as a little snack with some bbq sauce or ketchup. They also make a great topping for salad bowls as you can see below. Alternatively, you can add them to a wrap or as taco filling. Or, you can make slightly bigger nuggets and use them as burger patties!

Notes

You could also use any other plant-based milk, but soy milk works best to make vegan buttermilk because it has a high amount of protein.

Feel free to experiment with the ingredients for the dry mixture. You can use: breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, almond meal, ground hazelnuts/walnuts, quinoa, hemp seed hearts
