Crispy Tofu 'Chicken' Nuggets
A great option for vegetarians, these little tofu nuggets are irresistible. The batter perfectly coats each piece, creating that crispy, golden brown coating you look for in the best chicken nuggets. But don't be fooled! There's no meat in these, just a lean, cholesterol-free source of protein—tofu.
*You can easily make your own chickpea flour at home. Using a magic bullet or spice grinder, grind dried chickpeas until a fine powder forms. Sift the powder to remove any large pieces left behind.
These nuggets are delicious prepared according to above. However, if you have time to prep ahead, they're great when left to marinate in the batter. Simply prepare the batter, drop in the tofu pieces, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to overnight. If the batter thickens too much in the fridge, add a little extra water before frying to loosen it up.
