Pistachio Crusted Tofu

Pistachio can be expensive but it's so delicious and crunchy on this tofu. It can be served with rice or pasta and a little sauce on top goes a long way


– 10 oz of tofu – 1/2 C of shelled pistachios – 3/4 C of bread crumbs  – 2 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce – 2 tbsp of Hoisin sauce – 1/8 tsp of sriracha – Black Pepper to Taste

Preheat the over to 400 Cut the tofu into fillets, and brush on 2 tablespoons of soy sauce on both sides. Allow to sit and marinate for about 10 minutes

Using a food processor or similar device, pulse the pistachios into fine crumbs. Place them in a bowl with the bread crumbs and pepper and mix.

In another shallow bowl add the 1/2 Tablespoon of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sriracha.

Dip the tofu fillets into the mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture, and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. You may want to add more bread crumbs to the fillets by gently pushing it down on top.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the bread crumbs turn golden brown. Serve with pasta or rice and add a bit of sauce to the top.
