Crispy Sesame Tofu

I love tofu, because it’s one of the most variable staple ingredients in my kitchen. A great plant based protein, iron and calcium source with a neutral taste. You can make many savory or sweet dishes out of this incredible soy product and now I show you how to make these delicious, crispy sesame tofu bites in just 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Wrap the firm tofu in a kitchen towel and set something heavy on top for a few minutes.

Cube tofu and add to a mixing bowl.

Mix together the marinade ingredients. Sesame seeds, paprika, salt, mustard, soy sauce and lime juice.

Coat tofu cubes with the mixture.
