Simple Tofu and Tuna Nuggets

Simple Tofu and Tuna Nuggets

You can make a lot with only these ingredients. These are great as a bento side dish as they're tender and delicious even when cooled!

Ingredients: 2 servings

1 block
Canned tuna
1 can
Plain flour
4-5 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Mayonnaise (if you have it)
2 tablespoons


1. Spread a paper towel on a heat-resistant plate. Break the tofu into pieces with your hands and place on top of the plate. Heat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes to remove excess moisture. Place the tofu into a bowl (it will be hot so be careful!).
2. Add the canned tuna (you don't need to drain the oil), egg, plain flour, mayonnaise and soy sauce into the bowl with the tofu. Mix well.
3. Heat plenty of oil in a frying pan. Drop the batter into the frying pan using a spoon and fry. Once both sides have lightly browned, they're done!
4. The nuggets taste great just as is, but you could also add hijiki, chili peppers, or sauces. Arrange it however you prefer.
