I got the idea for baking tofu coated with nutritional yeast from someone on Instagram. What an easy and great idea. It’s literally just nooch. That means no oil, no gluten and no hassle. It is great with anything on the side or even in a sandwich. Today, I made mashed potatoes and broccoli because we pretty much eat that combo about 3 times a week. But this noochy tofu has become a regular staple in my kitchen!
1/2 block extra firm tofu
1/4 cup nooch, or more
Press the tofu for as long as you have time for. Cut it into 6 slices. Pour the nooch onto a flat plate and roll the tofu in the nooch to coat it as best you can. Don’t worry if there are empty spots.
Bake in a 350 oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli or whatever else you have on hand. Enjoy!

Lisa, I LOVE the idea of coating in nooch! It’s a staple for my husband and I (such amazing, cheesy flavor!). This combo looks absolutely delicious, especially for this cooler fall/winter weather coming up where I live!
it is super easy and i can’t believe i didn’t think of it sooner!
