Plant Based Crispy Baked Tofu

Tofu baked until golden and crispy, and served with some soft honey-roasted carrots.

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  • Trim and cut the carrots into bite size chunks. Rinse well. Place on a roasting tray, cut-side up, with some thyme leaves. Coat in some oil and season
  • Roast the carrots for about 30 minutes until soft and golden.
  • In the final 5-10 minutes, sprinkle over some honey or maple and continue roasting until golden.
  • Slice up the tofu into bite-sized cubes. Drain on a paper towel to remove any excess liquid. Press down on the tofu with the paper towel to remove as much liquid as possible.
  • Place the tofu in a bowl and drizzle with some olive oil and tamari (or soy sauce). Toss to coat. Then add in some cornstarch and toss until coated in the flour.
  • Place on a roasting tray and bake for about 30 minutes until crispy, shifting halfway.
  • Dish up the roasted carrots, top with the golden crispy tofu, and garnish with some chopped coriander and Gaia’s Pesto and Ruby Kraut (or your favourite toppings).
