Ninja Foodi Crispy Tofu Nuggets

5 - 1 review


  • 1 x 400g block firm tofu
  • 1/3 cup oat milk
  • 3 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp plain white gluten-free flour
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
Prep Time


  1. Drain the tofu and press in a tofu press to remove more water for crispier tofu. Use a tofu press. Alternatively, wrap the tofu in a clean kitchen towel and place it between two chopping boards, then pile several heavy books on top and leave it for 2-3 hours.

  2. Once the tofu has been drained/ pressed, use your hands to break it into ‘nugget’ sized chunks. You can cut it into pieces if you would prefer, but I think the ragged edges are better to hold the coating and make them look like typical chicken nuggets.

  3. Pour the oat milk into a shallow bowl.

  4. In a separate shallow bowl, mix together all of the remaining ingredients.

  5. Take a piece of tofu and coat it in milk, followed by the coating. Make sure that all of the sides are covered. Then place it in the Ninja Foodi Cook & Crisp Basket. Repeat until all of the tofu is coated.

  6. Seal the lid of the Foodi. Select ‘Air Crisp’ at 210°C for 20 minutes. Then press Start.

  7. Once the nuggets are ready you can serve them with chips and beans or a side salad.
