Perfect Vegan Snack with High Protein content.



  • 400g silken tofu
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 60g breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tamari or olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  1. First, press tofu to remove excess water. Cut it into large cubes and place them inside a tupperware.
  2. Add paprika to vegetable stock, and pour the mixture over tofu cubes.
  3. Close the container and place it into the freezer overnight. The liquid will freeze and form bubbles in between tofu layers, resulting in chicken-like texture.
  4. The next day, take tofu out and set it aside to defrost. Once it has, drain the liquid and gently press the cubes again to get rid of remaining stock.
  5. While you’re waiting for tofu to thaw out, make the marinade. In a small bowl or cup, combine oil, tamari, nutritional yeast and liquid smoke.
  6. Dip the cubes into marinade covering all sides, then coat it with breadcrumbs and transfer onto oven mesh or a lined tray.
  7. Bake at 200 C (392 F) for 15 minutes. Enjoy as a snack with a selection of dips, use them as
    a sandwich filling, or add these tofu bites to ramen soup.
