Tofu & Okara Springy and Chewy Nuggets

Tofu & Okara Springy and Chewy Nuggets

These get so puffy made in the frying pan. Since they're filled with protein and fiber, they're quite filling and perfect for dieting.

Ingredients: 9 large nuggets

Tofu
150 g
Okara
100 g
Katakuriko
80 g
Panko
40 g
Salt
a pinch
Grated cheese
2 tablespoons
Black pepper
2 shakes
Boiled veggies (optional)
50 g

Steps

1. Without draining the tofu, put everything into a bowl and mix.
2. You can optionally make cute shapes. This time I used onigiri rice ball shapers to make them sort of like taiyaki (fish shaped pancakes filled with red bean paste).
3. Heat oil in a frying pan and pan-fry both sides until browned.
4. Once they have browned to your preference, they're done. Serve with vinegar and soy sauce, Japanese mustard and soy sauce, sugar and soy sauce, or ketchup.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to try making tofu nuggets that weren't deep-fried, and finally managed to make these.
