Crispy Tofu Dippers

These crispy tofu dippers were such a popular recipe on my blog that I had to include them in my cookbook. (If you haven’t checked out my cookbook yet, click here!)


Crispy Tofu Dippers

These crispy tofu dippers go super well with a variety of sides like broccoli, rice, or potato wedges! I made a vegan “honey mustard” dipping sauce to go with them, but I also know they pair amazingly with plum sauce, ketchup and spicy mayo.

Crispy Tofu Dippers:

  • 1/2 block of tofu, sliced into triangles or whatever shape you like
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup flour (gluten free flour works too, but NOT coconut flour)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Vegan “Honey” Mustard Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (or more for a sweeter sauce)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Press your tofu to get the moisture out and then slice it into the shapes you like.
  3. Get 3 bowls. In one bowl, add the breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. In the next bowl add the flour. In the last bowl add the almond milk.
  4. Dip each piece of tofu first in the flour until it is coated, then in the almond milk and finally in the breadcrumb mixture. Watch the video below to see a step by step of this.
  5. Place onto a parchment-lined baking tray and bake at 400F for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for another 8-10 minutes. You can spray them with a bit of oil if you like to get them extra crispy.
  6. Meanwhile, whisk together sauce ingredients until smooth.
  7. Remove the tofu from the oven once golden brown and crispy. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving.

    I have a delicious gf vegan brownie recipe if you’d like it I can send it to you. My family including kids and not vegans eat them up.

    Liv! I saw in another video you froze these guys and then baked them. I have some in m my freezer right now.. How long should I bake them for and at what temp? Thanks so much, these are so tasty!

      You can reheat them on 350F (180C) for about 10 minutes, plus more time if they need it! I actually usually reheat them in my toaster oven but I believe that would be the equivalent for a standard oven :)!

    I can’t even describe how good these are… they’re so insanely delicious and so easy to make; I’ve only tried two of your recipes for myself so far (even though I watch all your videos) and you’re two for two! This is gonna be a new staple snack for me <3

    I literally make these every week. So easy and good. I use the sauce for so many things now and even non-vegans love it. Thank you so much for this!!

    These were such an amazing surprise!! I tried these the same day I tried and failed some tofu ground beef (not from this website) so my expectations were low. This literally turned my day around! Don’t hesitate! Make these, then make them again!! I’m only sad I had no dijon mustard because all the reviews call the sauce perfect

  6. Isabella says:

    These were so good and the sauce was amazing!! I marinated the tofu in vegan chicken broth for 12 hrs before making this and it added a really good flavor as well.
