Chipotle Corn Crusted Tofu

tofu title

Ingredients (serves 2-4):

  • 14 oz firm tofu, sliced into 1/2 inch thick tofu steaks
  • 1/2 cup organic corn meal
  • 2-3 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for frying (I used organic coconut oil)


  1. In a mixing bowl combine your corn meal, chipotle powder, salt, and whisk to combine. Place your tofu steak and coat each side with your corn meal, dust any excess off.
  2. Heat your skillet to medium-high heat (I opt to use my cast iron skillet as it gives a great crispy crust) and add 2 Tablespoons of your oil for frying.  Add your coated tofu and fry until golden about 5-7 minutes, carefully flip and cook for another 5-7 minutes (adding more oil as necessary).
  3. Enjoy eating whole!IMG_4832s

These tasty crusted tofu steaks are delicious topped with my Mango, Kiwi, Cucumber Salsa or my Creamy Red Pepper Sauce!
