When I initially made these Crispy Tofu Bites, I was intending to serve them as an appetizer with Red Hot Chili Sauce. That worked out well--they are flavorful and crunchy without all the baggage that goes with typical snacks and appetizers. As we were enjoying them, it was clear that they were very similar to chicken nuggets, and that they would also be perfect for a main dish. Quick and easy with only 4 ingredients, they are also vegan, gluten free and dairy free. Enjoy!
