For the Popcorn Tofu:

  • 1 package (14 oz.) Nasoya Organic Extra Firm Tofu, drained and pressed
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

For the Spicy Dipping Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons Japanese mayonnaise
    3 to 4 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
    1 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • toasted sesame seeds


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. After you have drained and pressed your tofu, cut the tofu into cubes. Prep three bowls for the dredging: the flour and season with a pinch of salt and pepper, the eggs and the panko. Season the panko with the smoked paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper and mix together.
  3. Dip each tofu cube in this order: in the flour, then the eggs and then in the panko. Once each piece of tofu is complete, place onto the lined baking sheet. Repeat until finished with all of the tofu. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
  4. For dipping sauce, using a small mixing bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients. Sprinkle on some toasted sesame seeds if desired. Serve with the Popcorn Tofu

    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.
