Tofu Fingers

My vegan take on "fish fingers". This is another 'family dinner' suitable for 9 months and over Maddie's food journal:

Ingredients (makes approximately 10):

  • 400g / 14oz tofu
  • 2 tsp egg replacer, I use Orgran No Egg
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 40g / 1.4oz oats
  • 40g 1.4oz wholemeal breadcrumbs, homemade or bought
  • 1/2 tsp salt:
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil for frying


  1. Slice the tofu into sticks or fingers then place into paper towel to drain any excess moisture.
  2. Combine the egg replacer and water and set aside. Place the flour in a separate bowl. In another bowl combine the oats, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper.
  3. Take a stick of tofu from the paper towel. Roll it in flour, then the ‘no egg’, then the oats and breadcrumbs making sure it has a really good coating. Repeat with the rest of the tofu.
  4. Place the oil in a frying pan and wait until it’s nice and hot. Put the tofu in, without crowding the pan and cook until golden brown on all sides, a couple of minutes each side. Use a little more oil if you need to. You could oven bake these as well to avoid using the oil.

I served these with steamed veg and a little lemon mayo (literally vegan mayonnaise with a good squeeze of lemon juice).

Any left overs are great lunch box snacks.
