Coconut Crusted Tofu (Recipe) (Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free)

Coconut Crusted Tofu

This tofu is so crispy and easy, and I love the coconut flavor. It’s definitely one of my favorite ways to make tofu. It was inspired by the recipe at Native Foods Blog: Best Baked Tofu . . . Ever!!

I cut the tofu in cubes for stir fry’s, long skinny strips for spring rolls, or flat slices as a side dish.

Firm tofu sliced in thin strips

Ingredients:

  • 1 package firm or extra firm tofu – I prefer the organic, sprouted, extra firm tofu from Trader Joe’s. Always buy organic when it comes to soy.
  • 3 T soy sauce or Bragg’s or coconut aminos
  • 4 T Nutritional yeast
  • 1 T coconut oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt the coconut oil in the oven in a shallow baking dish. I find a 9×13 Pyrex dish works great for one block of tofu.

Mix in the soy sauce and nutritional yeast then gently stir the tofu with a rubber spatula in the mixture until covered.

Spread the tofu out in the dish in a single layer.

Bake for 20-45 minutes until desired crispiness is achieved. Stir gently after 20 minutes to allow to brown evenly. I like to cook it 40-45 minutes so it’s very crispy and browned, but not burnt.
