1 block tofu
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp italian seasoning
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1/4 cup water
Freeze the tofu in the package for a few hours and then thaw, drain and press before using. Freezing is optional but strongly recommended for best results.
Break the tofu into bite size pieces.
Stir half the soy sauce, oil, garlic and half of the spices together and add the tofu. Toss to coat tofu and marinate for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir together flour, nutritional yeast, the rest of the spices, other half of soy sauce, mustard and water (a little bit at a time) to form a batter.
Coat tofu pieces individually in batter.
Gently drop pieces of tofu in hot oil over medium-high heat and fry until golden brown and floating. I haven’t tried this in the oven yet, but I’d imagine that it works if you bake it at a high temperature on parchment paper.
Drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
