Ingredients

Cajun Fried Tofu:

  • 1 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 block super firm tofu, pressed and cut into 1" strips
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour (sub gluten free AP flour)
  • 1 tablespoon cajun spice
  • 7 tablespoons non dairy milk
  • 1 bag Black Pepper OR Lightly Salted Harvest Snaps

Healthyish Coleslaw:

  • 1/4 green cabbage, sliced thin
  • 2 cups lacinato kale, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, grated
  • 1/3 cup vegan mayo
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • salt & pepper

Serve with:

  • 3-4 pretzel rolls (sub any kind of bread you want)
  • Healthy Honey Mustard

Instructions

  1. Crush your Harvest Snaps in the bag until they are crumbled into breadcrumb-like pieces. Put them in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Take the tofu and cut it into 1" strips. Then press your tofu with a paper towel, removing some of the water content. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine your flour, cajun spice and non dairy milk. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Heat the grapeseed oil over medium-low heat into a large frying pan.
  5. Take one tofu strip and roll it in your flour mixture, then roll it around in your Harvest Snaps - applying soft pressure to make them stick. Take the same piece of tofu and dredge it into your flour mixture again, followed by a final toss in your Harvest Snaps. Do this for all the strips.
  6. Throw your tofu into the oil, letting it cook for 1-2 min on each side, just until slightly browned.
  7. Place the nuggets on a paper towel when done to let the oil drain.
  8. Combine all of your Healthyish Coleslaw ingredients in a large bowl and massage with your hands until everything is well coated and combined.
  9. Stuff your pretzel rolls with Healthyish Coleslaw, top with a couple of Cajun Fried Tofu slices, and drizzle with Healthy Honey Mustard.
  10. EAT UP.
