Meatless Monday: Tofu nugget tortillas


This is an ideal recipe to serve to a crowd - just scale up the quantities. Your guests will enjoy assembling their own - provide a variety of salad veg to go with them.  They also make a great alternative to chicken nuggets for vegans.  

Tofu nugget tortillas
Serves 3-4
You will need

400g pack tofu, cut into small cubes
3 tbsp tamari
1/2 tsp stevia

Coating
75g polenta
1/2 tsp garlic powder 
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (or to taste)
Olive oil spray 

To serve 
3-4 tortillas
lime wedges
Also choose from the following 
Shredded lettuce
Tomato slices 
Corn kernels
Top with 
Coconut cream and fresh coriander (optional)

Remove the tofu from the packaging and place the tofu on kitchen paper to absorb any liquid so that the marinate will be taken up by the tofu.  Place the tamari and stevia in a bowl and add the tofu cubes.  Place in the fridge and marinate the tofu for around an hour until the tamari is absorbed.  

On a large plate mix the polenta, garlic powder and chilli.  Add the mariated tofu and toss to completely coat the tofu.  Spray a baking tray with olive oil spray and spread the coated tofu over the tray.  Spray the tofu with the spray and place in an oven at 200 degrees for around 2o minutes, stirring the tofu once, until the tofu are crispy. For the last 10 minutes place the tortillas wrapped in foil on a low shelf in the oven.

To serve separate the tortillas, place them on plates and add your salad of choice.  Top with tofu nuggets and coriander and coconut cream if using. Serve with lime wedges.
