Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 33 to 38 minutes
Total Time: 38 to 43 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 15 ounces extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup no-sugar-added tomato sauce or sugar-free ketchup

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Drain tofu, cut into large chunks and boil for 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Allow to cool. Cut the tofu into nugget-shaped pieces.
  2. Combine almond flour, nutritional yeast, garlic and salt in a large, resealable plastic bag. Add tofu pieces and toss until evenly coated.
