Spicy Tofu Canapés Easy

Great served as a canapé or starter alongside a salad.


  • 1 slab of firm tofu, cubed

Add the spices, date syrup and miso and continue to combine.

Add the tamari, garlic cooking oil and sesame seeds and combine with the cubed tofu and leave to marinate for at least an hour at room temperature

Fry at high heat until crispy (5-8 minutes)
