Tofu finger sandwiches – the delicious fingers are crispy on the outside and squidgy on the inside.

Served in a ciabatta bun with fresh and minty peas and creamy but tart tartar sauce. It’s an amazing taste and texture combination.

I have been meaning to create this recipe for ages – it’s such a fun and delicious way to eat tofu. I challenge even the most sceptical not to like this one.

If you’d like to see how to make this, head over to my Instagram to check out the video.

Note – I made 6 very large chunky fingers – but you can make smaller ones for more portions.

I really hope you love this super tasty recipe.

Much love, Niki xxx

Ingredients

  • 1 pack firm tofu drained and sliced into long finger shapes

For the batter

  • 130 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 250 ml water

For the crumb

  • 100 g panko breadcrumbs
  • Pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Pinch sea salt

For the flour dip

  • 50 g plain flour
  • 3- 4 ciabatta buns - depending on how large you make the tofu fingers
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the tartar sauce

  • 3 tbsp plant based natural yogurt
  • Juice 1/2 lemon.
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp dill pickles
  • 3 tsp mini capers
  • 2 tbsp dill chopped
  • Pinch each sea salt and black pepper.

Instructions

To make the minty peas

  • 200g frozen peas defrosted
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Squeeze lemon

To make the tartar sauce

  • Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix to combine.

To make the crushed peas

  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blitz to combine.

To make the tofu fingers

  • First, make the batter by mixing the flour in a bowl with the water and oil to make a pancake batter style consistency.
  • In another bowl, mix the panko breadcrumbs, chilli flakes, turmeric, sesame seeds, garlic powder and salt
  • Add plain flour to a third bowl.
  • Slice the tofu into chunky fingers (I made 6 huge ones)
  • Now dip each piece in the flour, then the batter, then finally in the breadcrumbs.
  • Ensure the tofu is really well coated.

To cook the tofu fingers

  • Preheat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, fry for around 2-3 minutes on each side–or until the breadcrumbs are golden.
  • Once they’re cooked, place them on a tray.

To serve

  • Top the base of the buns with minty peas, then the tofu fingers, then the tartar sauce.
  • Place the lid on top.

  1. This looks fantastic. How much mint is required for the minty peas? I couldn’t see any listed in the recipe or ingredients list. Huge thanks for any clarification you can give.

    PS. Your puy lentil stew on a bed of hummus is a staple in my house. So delicious.
