Quinoa Tofu Nuggets

Before I went vegan, chicken nuggets were a favorite of mine, even in adulthood.  I decided to try and make some with tofu.  I used extra firm tofu, as I wanted the texture to be just right.  I pressed my tofu for about an hour to get all of that extra water out.  These came out pretty darn delicious, and I would definitely make them again!



1 lb firm or extra firm tofu, drained and pressed of any water

Your favorite BBQ sauce (or any healthy, thick sauce.)

½ cup cooked quinoa



Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Add a wired rack on top (not necessary but I like this because the heat can get underneath the nuggets.)

Slice tofu into little squares or nuggets.  I took the cube of tofu and sliced it in half length-wise and then into 8 rectangles, or 4 each large half.

Pour a large amount of BBQ sauce into a bowl and dip your tofu in.  Make sure it is coated generously!  Then coat with the cooked quinoa.  Place onto wired rack. Continue until none remain.

Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until quinoa is browned and crispy. Serve alongside more sauce if desired!
