Servings 2 servings


  • 14 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • oil for cooking
  • 1/4 cup melted vegan butter (I used Flora Plant unsalted butter)
  • 2 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp maple syrup optional


  • First things first, freeze your packaged tofu overnight or until completely frozen.
  • Thaw tofu completely. Remove from package.
  • Drain and press tofu to remove liquid. Press for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once the tofu has drained, the texture will be ready for you to break apart into chunks or pieces.
  • Add tofu pieces into a bowl along with garlic powder, onion powder, and non-dairy milk. Gently toss tofu with your hands until well combined.
  • Dip each tofu piece into a small bowl of cornstarch. Make sure all sides of the tofu cubes are covered.
  • Line a large skillet with oil and bring up to medium-high heat.
  • Once oil is heated, add the tofu to the skillet and brown on all sides. Remove and place on a cooling rack or a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Add tofu to a bowl and drizzle with melted butter, lemon juice, and lemon pepper seasoning. Toss the tofu around to coat and then serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
