  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Slice tofu into nugget sized pieces.
  • In one bowl, mix Dijon mustard and unsweetened plain almond milk.
  • In another bowl, mix nutritional yeast, garbanzo bean flour, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Dip tofu nuggets in wet mixture, then in dry mixture. Place on an oiled piece of parchment on a sheet pan. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, flip and bake for another 20 minutes*.
  • Serve with Gluten Free BBQ Sauce, Sweet Mustard Dressing, or marinara sauce.


If you have leftovers, bake for a few minutes and they will crisp up again. Microwaving them will not keep them as crispy.
If you prefer frying, pour enough oil into a pan about ½ the way up the pan. You can test the oil by dropping a couple of drops of water or the batter into the oil. If they sizzle, your oil is hot enough. Fry until golden brown, and flip and fry the other side.
