Crispy Hummus Tofu

Here we have classic baked tofu with a hummus crusted twist! Even my non-tofu-lover friends enjoyed this... which says a lot!


Ingredients:
  • 1 package extra firm tofu, drained, and with the water pressed out
  • 1 cup gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 container hummus. (Careful, this one from Sabra has a slight lemony flavor and is addicting!)
  • Optional: rainbow chard to serve
Serves 4-6.

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut tofu in half width wise so that you have 2 squares, then cut each square into 4 smaller squares, and then cut each smaller square in half to make triangles. You'll have 16 triangles in the end. (Woo, math is fun.)
  •  Place breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl.
  • Using a small knife, cover an entire triangle with hummus, and then dip in breadcrumbs so all sides are coated. Place on a non-stick tray. Repeat until all triangles are finished.
  • Bake tofu triangles for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, delicately flip over so opposite sides are on top, and bake for additional 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes and firm up. Serve over a bed of sauteed chard, which I like to refer to as Kale's fraternal twin :) Enjoy!

  3. I just pinned this on my Pinterest board because I NEED to make it soon. I would have never thought to coat tofu in hummus, but that sounds so good! And it really doesn't get any more vegan than tofu coated in hummus. Ha!
