Vegan Spicy Tofu Chicken

This vegan spicy tofu chicken recipe is inspired by a trip to Loving Hut Southgate where I was served tasty vegan chicken pieces in rice noodles with stir fried vegetables. Vegan spicy tofu chicken is easy to make and is delicious in a vegan chicken and lettuce wrap or with a meal for dinner.

Serves 4


1 block tofu

3tbsp gluten free flour

1tbsp ground flaxseed or gram flour

1tbsp dijon mustard

2tsp cumin

1tsp coriander

1/2tsp sea salt

1/2tsp black pepper

100ml water

1tbsp coconut oil


Firstly drain the tofu and place it on a piece of kitchen roll. Place something heavy such as a chopping board on top of the tofu and press down.

Now prepare the batter. Add the flour, ground flaxseed, mustard, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix it together, then create a well in the middle. Slowly add the water and mix in as you go, until the mixture forms a smooth batter.

Break up the pressed tofu into bite sized pieces and add into the batter. Cover the tofu in batter.

Add the oil into a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add in the tofu pieces and fry for 10-15 minutes until the tofu sides are golden brown. Turn over the tofu pieces half way through.

Serve warm and eat immediately.

Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

These divine spicy sweet potato wedges were inspired by the fact that I noticed that I had 4 bags of sweet potatoes in the bottom of the fridge that were rapidly going out of date! So I decided to make the spicy wedges for dinner to use up one of the bags. It is a simple and easy to make recipe, and the spicy flavours of the crisp sweet potato wedges make a tasty dish!
