Baked Curry Tofu
- 1 block extra firm or firm tofu
- 2 tsp. flaxseed meal
- 1 Tbsp arrowroot starch
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. coriander
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Turn on fan. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a clean dish dowl, wrap tofu and lightly press to remove some moisture. Slice into 1/2-inch cubes. If tofu still feels very wet, wrap in dish towel and lightly press to dry again. (Slight moisture will help the spices stick).
- In medium bowl, mix together flax meal, starch and spices until thoroughly combined. Toss in tofu pieces until thoroughly coated.
- On prepared baking sheet, arrange tofu pieces, being careful to not overcrowd. Bake 15 minutes.
Short on spices? Use 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder in place of the turmeric, cumin, coriander and garlic powder.
