This Cajun Spiced Tofu is the bomb. Really, You just have to try it. The crunchy, crispy, spicy coating encapsulating the firm tofu will win your taste buds, your heart, your mind and those around you!
These scrumptious morsels can be enjoyed in a vast amount of ways. Add them to a salad, in a burger, or on it’s own with vegetables. We love it so much when ideas shape into forms that can be enjoyed with a huge variety of food.
I used aquafaba (the brine of chickpeas) to coat the tofu in, it’s a great substitute for egg whites. Even if you whip it up it becomes all fluffy like egg whites too. It’s amazing! With the remaining chickpeas, you could try out our Chickpea Pumpin and Dill Burgers. If you’re interested in more recipes with aquafaba – try out our Coconut Raspberry Slice. It’s certain to be a crowd pleaser!
Lets take a brief moment to talk about sesame seeds. Well I took it a step further and used ‘black’ sesame seeds! I’m a bit obsessed with them – I just love the flavour and they give a great colour to most dishes! Using them on the tofu helped portray that spicy, peppery look. Everyone knows that the thought of food always comes through your senses and the visual sense plays a huge role.
We made a video on how to make it. You can check it out on our YouTube channel below:
