Crispy Tofu Bagels 

Ingredients (Serves 2)

For the Tofu 

  • 0.5 cm slices of firm tofu 

  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs 

  • 1 cup plain flour 

For the Bagel 

  • 2 sourdough bagels 

  • 1 large sweet tomato 

  • Crispy iceberg lettuce 

  • 8 thin slices of cucumber 

  • Sriracha mayo 

  • Tomato ketchup 

  • Fresh cress 

  1. Before frying your tofu prepare all of your bagel fillings. 

  2. Slice your tofu into thin slices (0.5-1cm). Gently pat dry using kitchen paper. 

  3. Assemble 3 bowls (1 with breadcrumbs, 1 with 1/2 cup plain flour and 1 with 1/2 cup plain flour and water). The bowl with the flour and water needs to be sticky enough to allow the breading of the tofu slices

  4. Dip the tofu into plain flour, then flour + water and then panko breadcrumbs. 

  5. Heat a large frying pan and add a decent amount of vegetable oil to allow for shallow frying. Fry on both sides until the tofu is crispy. Drain onto kitchen paper and season with a little salt and pepper. 

  6. Toast the bagels and assemble according to the picture!

  7. Enjoy!
