Roasted Tofu Lollipops

9 Aug

A great appetizer for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike! I came across a picture on pinterest which led me to a recipe on chowvegan.com which served as the inspiration for this recipe.

Time: 5 min prep, 30 min cook                 Serves: 5

Ingredients


  • 1 14 oz. block extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp paprikashopping list
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp pesto (can use Pistachio Pesto if you’d like)

How to make it


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, combine the oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Whisk to incorporate.
  • Cut the tofu into cubes and gently toss to coat with the mixture. I did them one by one.
  • Place each tofu cube in single layer on baking sheet
  • Roast for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, flip over and return for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Stick each with a toothpick/short skewer/bamboo fork and top with a bit of pesto.
