  • 1 14 oz. block of firm tofu
  • 2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • cup water
  • 2-3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil


  1. Press the tofu and use your hands to break into bite-sized chunks. (At this point you can freeze it or just proceed to the next steps.)

  2. In a mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients, then gradually whisk in the water until you’ve achieved pancake batter consistency.

  3. Add the tofu chunks and mix well.

  4. Add the olive oil to a pan and heat on medium.

  5. Add the tofu to the pan, spreading it out so it will be heated equally. Cook pieces on both sides until they are browned and crispy; you may need to add a bit more oil so keep an eye on them (and watch out for splatters from the hot oil!).

  6. When they’re done, place on a paper towel-covered plate to absorb any excess oil.

    Enjoy plain, with dipping sauce, or any way you like!
