Tofu Sticks


  • 1 block Extra Firm Tofu
  • 1 cup Gluten-free Panko-style Bread Crumbs
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)
  • aquafaba, from 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • Daiya Hon’y Mustard Dairy-Free Dressing, for dipping


Press tofu between paper towels or cloth for 30 minutes to remove excess moisture

Preheat oven to 400

Cut the block of tofu into 5-6 slices and then cut slices in half to make sticks

In a medium sized bowl combine gluten-free panko style breadcrumbs, extra virgin olive oil, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside.

In a second bowl place aquafaba and set aside

In a third bowl place gluten free flour.

Create a breading station: line up the bowl of flour, the bowl of aquafaba, and the bowl of bread crumbs.

Taking one tofu finger at a time, toss into the flour first, then dip into the aquafaba and finally coat with the breadcrumb mixture

Repeat with all the tofu sticks, placing them on a lightly greased baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, flipping them halfway through baking.

Allow to cool slightly before serving with Hon'y Mustard Dressing and veggies of your choice.
