Crispy Tofu Cubes

This is a super simple tofu recipe!

  • 2 T nutritional yeast
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 T garlic salt
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1-2 T oil
  • 1 T soy sauce


Drain and pat dry the tofu, then cut it into 1/4 inch / 7 mm cubes. Combine the nutritional yeast, flour, garlic salt and pepper in a container with a lid. Add the tofu. Shake well to coat the tofu.Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet. Add the tofu and cook over medium heat turning the tofu every few minutes until golden brown and crispy. Add the soy sauce once the tofu is fully cooked.

Use in stir frys, fried rice or eat plain with ketchup.

I’ve made this a few times now, and it’s surprisingly tasty. :) The one thing that I do differently is that I usually toss the tofu cubes in a little bit of reduced sodium tamari prior to coating them with the flour/spice mixture, that way I don’t have to add the soy sauce/tamari later. i usually eat it with some mashed cauliflower (in place of mashed potatoes) and some other veggie, it’s probably my favorite healthified “comfort food.”
