Gigi's Vegan Mofo Recipe: Tofu Nuggets

I'm not the only one blogging up a storm for Vegan Mofo this month.  Veganville's Gigi (you know, the vegan whoopie pie goddess) has been a busier bee than me.  I highly recommend checking out her blog- click here for more delicious recipes.  Here is Gigi's take on You Won't Believe It's Vegan's tofu dish.  

Tofu Nuggets 
adapted from You Won't Believe It's Vegan

1 block firm tofu drained and pressed and cut into cubes
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1 T soy sauce or tamari
1/2 C nooch
2  T 21 Salute

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and coat with 1 T of olive oil.
Place the cubes in  a medium bowl and port the oil and soy sauce over it and toss it. Sprinkle with dry ingredients and toss again. Spread the cubes on the parchment bake 25 minutes turning once half way through baking time.
These are great in a sandwich, a salad, over grains.  If you want wish to serve them as a main course in a meal, they are great with slaw, polenta fries and/or sweet potato fries. 

Before you go, I wanted to plug Gigi a bit because I adore her baked goods.  Gigi doesn't just bake cupcakes, she also makes cupcakes, cookies and the chocolate scrumptiousness that is called Sam Sam Loaf (my friend Jill's fav).  Thanks for sharing, Gigi!
