Tofu Fries.

February 29, 2012 by Carolina

Guys, I think I’m in love. I’ve always been a french fries addict (& eggplant friesparsnip friessweet potato fries…see a trend here?)  but am not a fan of all the grease & carbs, neither are my hips (Shakira was right, hips don’t lie!). Good thing I have discovered tofu fries cause they are a) delicious, b) easy to make & c) at only 10 calories for an entire block of tofu, they are super low calorie/low carb — I’m officially in love!

Tofu is one of the ingredients that has a bad rep of being bland, I’m here to tell you to give tofu a chance. The wonderful thing about tofu is that it really absorbs all the spices you put on it. Plus, when it’s baked it gets crispy, like fries.  Become a tofu lover & unleash your inner Shakira with these yummy tofu fries. Your taste buds will thank you.


1 Block Extra Firm Tofu

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoons black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drain & press tofu for 15 – 20 minutes & cut into strips. Toss tofu strips with olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, & cumin. Bake tofu fries for 25 – 30 minutes until crispy. Buen provecho!

Serve plain or with ketchup & enjoy.  Are you a tofu fries convert yet?
