This recipe is super fast, really tasty, and costs a couple bucks for the tofu.  It’s a great finger food, snack, salad topper or a quick meal if you want to serve it with a side of veggies.

There’s some oil involved in this recipe, so be thoughtful of that, and make sure to remove the triangles from the oil and onto a paper towel to soak up any excess.


  • 1 Block of Tofu, pressed and cut into triangles
  • ground black pepper
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoons of sweetener (maple syrup or agave)
  • 3 tablespoons of oil (I used safflower)


Step 1

Add the oil to a frying pan and allow it to heat on medium-high

Step 2

Add the tofu triangles, then coat the top with a healthy covering of ground black pepper, a sprinkle of salt and the sweetener

Step 3

Allow the bottom to become golden before flipping, about 3 minutes. Flip and repeat until both sides are golden.

Step 4

Remove from the pan and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil, then serve!

    Made this a few days ago and it was super quick and easy to make. I used maple syrup and ate it with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. 🙂

    So easy, yet so delicious! I found this recipe earlier today and had to try it tonight. Thanks! I am going to go to an A L workshop in Germany this weekend and am going to make lots of these for everyone to try.

    So simple and so good. I made them as sort of a snack to go with our dinner and my three year old actually hugged me and told me I was a good mom- yes, after serving tofu!! Ha. I could definitely see how these could be good tossed on top of a salad. I did press the tofu for a while to get the liquid out and try to make it as dry as possible, not sure if that was necessary, but I think it helped.
