Extra-firm tofu makes a happy home under a thick coating of panko crumbs. These nuggets are crispy, delicious and fun to dip.


  • 350-g pkg extra-firm tofu, cubed

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • ½ cup panko bread crumb


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with foil.

  • In a medium bowl, toss cubed tofu with oil and salt. Pour panko into a medium bowl. Toss tofu, in batches, in panko until completely coated, then arrange in a single layer on prepared sheet. Bake in centre of oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 min. Use in salads, on soup, or as a simple snack with dipping sauce.
