Hi all!!!! :)))) Its been a while since I had a chance to jump on a normal computer (not just my phone) and share a great recipe blog with you all 🙂
Last night I made some DELICIOUS Tofu Popcorn Chick’n Bites and they are too good to keep all to myself (not that I would anyway – you know I LOVE sharing all good food with you).
I really hope you enjoy them! You could serve them with some steamed veggies or even be naughty and have them with some home-made chips!!
Lets get right into it!!!
STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. For this I used chickpea flour (Besan flour – found in the Indian section at Coles), coconut oil, firm, organic tofu, yeast flakes, mustard, lemon pepper seasoning, salt, pepper and some cayenne pepper.
STEP 2 – First you need to drain/dry the tofu so you cut it up into slices, wrap in paper towel and add some weight on top! Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
STEP 3 – Now to make the coating. Add (all my measurements are a rough guide) 1/3 cup chickpea flour, 1/2 cup of yeast flakes, 1 TBS of lemon/pepper seasoning, 1 tsp. of salt and a dash of cayenne pepper. Mix well and taste. Add more ingredients to your liking.
STEP 4 – Add water slowly and gradually until the consistency becomes thick, yet smooth (not watery) – almost like cake/pancake mix. Approx. 1/2 a cup. Now add a big TBS of mustard and stir well. Taste, taste, TASTE!!!
Step 5 – Break apart the tofu into chucks (you can cut if you like) and mix it through with the coating mixture so all the tofu bites are covered!!! Don’t be afraid to use your hands in the kitchen! Getting messy is fun 🙂
STEP 6 – Melt a little coconut oil in a pan and add the tofu and mixture. Let cook for a few minutes each side until all the tofu bites are golden and brown. Beware of sneaky fur babies stealing your beans and running away with them 😉
We served ours with some lemon/garlic greens 🙂 Enjoy for dinner, a snack or even breakfast the next day also hahahaha 🙂
Hope you enjoy this quick and easy meal full of flavour and comfort! Let us know how you go!!!
Until next time smile, eat well and be kind to animals 🙂
