Appetizers ready in 20 minutes! Serve your family with tofu flavored with barbecue sauce.

Ingredients

3
tablespoons all-purpose flour
6
tablespoons cold water
2/3
cup unseasoned dry bread crumbs
1
teaspoon salt
Dash of ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
package (12 oz) extra-firm tofu packed in water, drained, cut into 1-inch cubes
Vegetable oil
2/3
cup barbecue sauce, sweet-and-sour sauce, salsa or ketchup

Directions

  • 1 In small bowl, beat flour and water with wire whisk or hand beater until smooth. In shallow dish or pie plate, toss bread crumbs, salt and red pepper.
  • 2 Dip tofu cubes into batter, then roll in bread crumb mixture to coat.
  • 3 In 10-inch skillet, heat oil (1/2 inch) over medium-high heat. Cook 15 nuggets at a time in oil about 1 minute, turning once, until golden brown. Drain nuggets on paper towels. Serve hot with barbecue sauce.
Tips  

Extra-firm tofu holds up to frying and gives these golden brown nuggets a slightly chewy texture.
