Tofu Nuggets

Here is a favorite recipe that is very easy to make and the kids love
them. The original recipe contained egg, but I use a flax seed meal and
water mixture instead to make this recipe vegan. You can make it
completely gluten-free by using gluten-free cracker or bread crumbs.

Tofu Nuggets

cubed extra firm tofu
1 Tbsp flax seed meal
3 Tbsp water
bread crumbs or the gluten-free equivalent
garlic salt, to taste
paprika, to taste
pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350*F.

You will need 3 shallow dishes. In the first place a bit of flour. In
the second, mix together the flax seed meal and water. Set aside to
rest for a few minutes. In the third, mix together bread crumbs, garlic
salt, paprika, and pepper to taste. If you want, you could simply use
seasoned bread crumbs for this instead.

Dredge the cubed tofu in flour, then in the flax seed meal mixture, and
lastly the seasoned bread crumbs. Place on a rack in a baking sheet.
Bake at 350*F for 15-20 minutes or until crisp.

My kids love these for dipping into applesauce, ranch-type dressing, or
even yogurt.
