1 pkg Nasoya® Organic Cubed Super Firm Tofu
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup rice milk
1 avocado
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon
1 1/2 cups basil
1/2 cup walnuts
1 to 2 cups kale
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1 onion
Cracked red pepper
1/2 cup plus 1 to 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 box farfalle pasta


1 ripe avocado, pitted
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 whole lemon, juiced
1 1/2 cups fresh basil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup olive oil


  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or lightly grease it. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup of rice flour, 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Set aside in a bowl.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of rice milk into a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Cube tofu block. Then dip each cube in the rice milk and then into the powder mixture and then place onto the cookie sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Set aside.
  6. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Start with a smaller amount of olive oil and add up to 3/4 of a cup for the desired consistency.
  7. Using 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil, saute 1 to 2 cups kale, 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes, 1 chopped onion, and 2 to 4 cloves of garlic (sliced). Season with cracked red pepper and salt. (If you like spicy, add extra cracked red pepper!)
  8. Combine cooked farfalle pasta (1 box) with the pesto and vegetables and mix well. Salt if needed. Then add the baked tofu.
  9. Serve immediately, or place in a casserole dish to store and serve later!

    Cornstarch holds the key to crispiness! Tossing tofu in cornstarch and giving it a light coating helps it take on a truly crispy crust when pan-searing or frying.
