Baked Tofu Bites

These are “like” crackers…sort of. But they were good! They are chewier in the middle as they don’t totally firm up, but the edges are crispy so they are close. They were easy to make and really good for something to snack on while watching a movie or something like that. They take some time to eat so they will not be gone in 30 seconds. I liked the seasoning I used and it went well with the salsa.

Baked Tofu Bites Recipe

Gather:

  • 1/4 package of extra firm tofu
  • Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy
  • Fresh salsa with lower sodium content

Create:

Dry tofu by patting it with several paper towels or a clean kitche towel. You can squeeze tofu slightly to get all of the moisture out. Slice into very thin slices for your bites. Place on a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle generously with seasoning. Turn over and sprinkle again. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn bites over and bake an additional 20 minutes. When you take them out, they should have browned and turned crispy on the edges. Serve with fresh salsa or a store bought low sodium brand. I have tried the Engine 2 salsa. It was OK, but I prefer the salsa found in the produce section of Publix.

Revise:

You can use many other seasonings for this. Garlic and serve with marinara. Greek seasoning and cucumber sauce. Herbs and hummus. Lots of combinations are possible. Enjoy! ~ Amanda Rae
