Pizza Tofu


Ingredients
  1. 2 blocks firm tofu preferably organic
Marinade:
  1. 1/4 cup Bragg's aminos you can use soy sauce, but reduce to 2 tablespoons soy sauce + 2 tablespoons water
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1 teaspoon no-chicken stock concentrate I like Better Than Boullion No-Chicken, or use veggie bullion cube)
  4. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds whole or ground is fine
  6. 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  9. 2 Tablespoon tomato paste
  10. 1 Tablespoon agave
Breading:
  1. 2/3 - 3/4 cup rice flour you can sub regular all purpose flour if you don't need to be gluten free
  2. 2 T corn starch to help the rice flour to stick better, you can omit if you use all purpose flour
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  5. Marinara sauce for dipping if desired
Instructions
  • Press your tofu to release as much water as possible.  Set aside.  Mix together the soy sauce, water, spices, boullion, tomato paste and agave.   Slice the tofu into whatever size you want—I sliced each block into 8 pieces for easy cooking/flipping in the oven.  Marinate the tofu for at least 1 hour, but you could do up to 3 or 4.
  • Preheat oven to 425°.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Remove the tofu from the marinade and use your hands to wipe off the excess marinade. Set aside.  (Trust me, do this first, all at one time rather than for each dip—it gets messy).
