Crispy Battered Tofu

These are very Crispy and Delicious! 

Also good served cold, so they're great for picnics, 

or turn them into a meal with rice and veggies. 

WARNING - they taste like crispy fried chicken breast!



Batter A Ingredients: 

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ tbsp garlic salt (3/4 tsp Salt : 1 ½ tbsp Garlic powder)

  • 2 tsp ground black pepper (optional)

  • 1 tsp Paprika

  • 2 Tbsp vegan Chicken seasoning

  • 1 tsp Fine Celtic Salt


Batter B Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 egg yolks Substitute, beaten

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1 Tbsp Tahini paste


Part C - Prepare the Tofu: 

  • 500g Firm Tofu

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup soy milk

  • 1 Tbsp Soy sauce

  • 2 tsp vegan chicken seasoning

  • 1 tsp Garlic powder

  • 1 tsp Onion powder

  • 1 tsp Tahini paste

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • Dash of pepper (optional)

Other Ingredients:

  • 4 Cups Rice bran oil for frying

  • 450g Firm Tofu, cut into pieces


    1.  First prepare the Tofu. You will need to freeze the tofu overnight and thaw it before using. This process will change              the texture of the tofu to be more spongelike and springy.  It helps to absorb more flavour and quite frankly resembles          the texture of chicken breast. If you don’t make time, you can skip this part and just use Firm tofu straight from the              pack.

   2.  Cut strips of Tofu or tear them with hands to create a more rustic shape.

   3.  In a wide pot, place all of Part C - Tofu mixture in, mix and taste. Adjust seasoning to taste. Remember the flavour                of this stock will determine how flavourful your tofu will be.  Add all the tofu in and make sure the stock covers the              tofu. Add more water and seasoning if needed.

  4.   Simmer for 30-40mins until all the stock has simmered down and absorbed into the tofu.  Do not pour any of the                stock out – this is what’s going to make the tofu yum!

  5.   In one medium bowl, mix together all of Batter A ingredients.

  6.   In another bowl, whisk together Batter B Ingredients. If the batter is too thick, you may need to thin it out with                      additional water. Start with a tbsp and work from there.

  7.   Heat the oil in a deep-fryer/pan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  8.   Dip the prepared Tofu pieces in the dry mix A. Shake off excess and dip in the wet mix B, then dip back into the dry              mix A again.  Place tofu pieces onto a tray and repeat until all done.

  9.   Carefully place the Tofu pieces in the hot oil. Fry for about 10 mins, or until slightly golden. Once done, remove and            drain on paper towels.

  10.  Can be served with Steamed rice, Vegan sweet fish dipping sauce (mixed with our hot cayenne pepper ‘chillie’ sauce          for the adults), cold pickled carrots and capsicum salad and additional vegetable dish on the side if desired. Or simply          eat it straight up with tomato sauce. So Good!​
