  • 1 Pkg. Extra Firm Tofu
  • Breading of your choice.
  • Hot Sauce Optional


  • Before cooking, drain the tofu. To drain, take it out of the package and place it inside your EZ Tofu Press. Make sure it’s as tight as you can get it, especially if you prefer extra firm tofu. You want the tofu to be drained as much as possible.
  • After the tofu has drained for 20 minutes, preheat the deep fryer to 350* Degrees F.
  • Slice the tofu into 1″ cubes.
  • Mix your breading with cajun seasoning.
  • Put it in a gallon zip lock bag with the tofu. Shake until well covered.
  • Drop tofu into the deep fryer to fry about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the remaining breading in a bowl and save it.
  • After 5 minutes, dump the tofu into a bowl of hot sauce and then bread it again.
  • Deep fry for another 15 minutes or so before testing, then every few minutes until tofu is cooked thoroughly.
  • Serve with dips of your choice. Enjoy!
