Ingredients for servings

  • 2 blocks extra firm tofu 28 oz

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 0.25 cup quinoa flour

  • 0.5 cup nutritional yeast

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic

  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • 0.25 tsp smoked paprika

  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

  • Cut the tofu into steaks, about 1/2” thick. Each block should get you about 6 steaks. Set aside.

  • In shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the dry ingredients.

  • Now, set up your assembly line! Put the olive oil in another shallow dish. First, coat a tofu steak in oil. Then place the tofu in the bowl of the dry ingredients and coat the tofu with the dry mixture. Place the steak on a baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the tofu.

  • When ready to bake, place the baking sheet in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, then flip and cook for another 15 - 20. You want the tofu to be golden brown and crispy.

  • Serve tofu with your favorite sauce (I love a garlic tahini sauce!) and your favorite vegetable side dish. Enjoy!
