Instant Tofu Nuggets

Instant Tofu Nuggets

My concept is to make this as easily and quickly as possible, yet still tasty and healthy.

Ingredients: 28-32 nuggets

Firm tofu (1 block = 400 g)
2 blocks
1/2 (100-120 g)
Dried panko
2 cups (400 ml)
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Soup stock granules
2 teaspoons
to taste
White or black pepper
to taste
Garlic powder (optional)
2 teaspoons
Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce
to taste

1. Drain the tofu very well. One 400 g block will become about 250 g to 300 g.
2. Put the onion in the bowl of a food processor and switch on! When it's chopped up add all the other ingredients and turn on the switch! Taste and adjust the seasoning.
3. When the mixture turns into a paste, adjust the texture. Add panko if it's too soft, and add a bit of water if it's too stiff. It should be about the consistency of uncooked hamburger. Divide into bite-sized portions.
4. Form the portioned paste into oval shaped patties, deep fry in oil and they are done. If you press the back of a fork into them before frying they'll look like chicken nuggets.
5. This is after I've portioned the paste from Step 3 with a small ice cream scooper into bite-sized pieces.
6. I deep fried them at 180°C.

Story Behind this Recipe

I don't really like buying readymade stuff for the things that I serve to my kids everyday. So I sort of fumbled my way through things as usual, to come up with this recipe.
