Tofu Bites (low-amine, gluten-free, diary-free, nut-free, tomato-free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian)
Sometimes I have a hard time getting enough protein in my diet. I don’t always feel like eating (or dealing with prepping and cooking) meat. Tofu is a great, low-amine option in lieu of meat, and I like to utilize it by making a lot at once and eating it for a couple days. Soft tofu is the lowest in amines, whereas firm tofu is higher. Once baked, I prefer the texture of soft tofu to firm tofu, which I feel is almost too firm at that point. But whatever floats your boat. I seasoned half of this batch with my Cajun Spice Mix, and the other half with mustard-free (mustard is high in amines) curry powder, but feel free to use any seasoning you’d like, or none at all.
3 blocks tofu
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees
- Cut tofu into squares.
- Arrange on a cookie sheet and season, if desired.
Low-amine tofu bites, seasoned and ready to bake.
- Bake for 2-4 hours, or until they reach desired texture. I like mine more firm, so I let them go longer. If you like yours softer, cook for less time.
Here’s one way to use them… I stir fried some brussels sprouts and celery, added my low-amine BBQ sauce, and dropped in the tofu bites. Tossed together till everything was cooked and warm, and served it over a serving of rice. Simple and delicious!
Low Amine: soft tofu
