Updated August 11, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons cold water
  • 2/3 cup unseasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 package (12 oz) extra-firm tofu packed in water, drained, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce, sweet-and-sour sauce, salsa or ketchup

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, beat flour and water with wire whisk or hand beater until smooth. In shallow dish or pie plate, toss bread crumbs, salt and red pepper.
  • 2
    Dip tofu cubes into batter, then roll in bread crumb mixture to coat.
  • 3
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil (1/2 inch) over medium-high heat. Cook 15 nuggets at a time in oil about 1 minute, turning once, until golden brown. Drain nuggets on paper towels. Serve hot with barbecue sauce.

  • Extra-firm tofu holds up to frying and gives these golden brown nuggets a slightly chewy texture.
