Green Onion & Garlic Crispy Tofu

Green Onion & Garlic Crispy Tofu- this is SO easy to make, VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, and a great meat substitute for any dish!

It’s Friday and it’s sunny and the days seem to be getting longer and I love it all! I’m one of those people that’s drastically affected by the weather (hence why I open every other blog post with an intense paragraph about the status of the weather).

Last night we went to a hockey game with 180 other people from Stephen’s work. We had a great time and yet not ONCE actually went to our seats. We literally didn’t watch a minute of the game. It was awesome :) And, our team won so all around a good night. I’ve always loved the idea of sports but have never been one to really get into the actual game.

Let’s jump right into this Green Onion & Garlic Crispy Tofu, shall we? I’m a HUGE fan and that’s coming from a girl who didn’t know what tofu was until I got to college (same goes for sushi).

When I last made this tofu, I ended up just snacking on it. Like, eating tofu piece after piece with my fingers. However, it’s also great as a meat alternative to pretty much any dish. Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing a recipe with y’all soon :D

It’s also VERY easy to make.

The tofu is cut into small, bite sized pieces and placed on a lined baking tray.

When the tofu is nearly done baking, a simple sauce of oil, garlic, and soy sauce is made and the tofu is tossed in.

  3. Your ingredients list sesame oil and chopped green onion for the topping, but instructions say to top with sesame seeds and green onion?

  4. I tried this and the tofu stuck to the pan really badly 

    • So sorry to hear that! I make it this way quite often and the pan can definitely change things. If it’s sticking at all, I usually just add a little more oil
