Plant Based Crispy Fingers

By: Sharon Matten January 06, 2022
These crispy fingers make a crispy, crunchy, delicious dinner! You can choose from any of your favorite coatings, or even mix and match! I’ve also found that using High Protein tofu yields a Crispy Finger that is comparable in texture to a real chicken finger.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil then spray with nonstick vegetable spray. Set aside
  3. Place the breading/crumbs in a large casserole dish. You can use a 9x13 inch pan as well.
  4. Place the potato starch in a medium sized pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and canola oil.
  5. Dip a tofu stick into the potato starch turning until completely coated. Remove the stick from the starch and gently shake of excess starch.
  6. Dip the stick into the egg mixture, making sure there is no starch showing. Remove the stick from the egg and gently shake off excess egg.
  7. Immediately press the stick into the breading, turning to make sure the entire stick is completely covered. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Repeat with the remaining tofu strips.
  9. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  10. Remove the pan from the oven and using a fork, spatula or tongs, turn the sticks over. Bake for another 5 minutes until the sticks are completely browned.
  11. Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauces.

Tips

  • Rice cakes packages will generally be around 3-3.5 ounces, and chip bags should be (at least) 5-6 ounces.
  • You may have extra breading left over. Seal it in an airtight container for another recipe.
  • You can also use a bag of Trader Joe's Rice Breading...if you can find it!
  • You can also fry these Crispy fingers but I found that baking them works as well if not better.
  • If using rice cakes or pop chips, season the egg with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper or your favorite seasonings.
  • If you are vegan, substitute your favorite egg replacer for the eggs.
