Enough chitchat! Here is the recipe!


• 2 slices of extra firm tofu (about 1/2 cm thick)
• 1 teaspoon chicken rub
• 1/2 cup of panic bread
• 1/4 cup chickpea flour
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
• 1/3 cup unsweetened vegan milk
• 1 cup of tomato sauce
• 200ml unsweetened vegan milk (any milk except coconut milk)
• 2 to 3 tablespoons of sour starch or tapioca starch
• Salt to taste
• 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
• 1 teaspoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar


  • 1.
    Cut the tofu into 1/2 cm thick filets, then cut them into rounder shapes or leave them in their original shape if you prefer.
  • 2.
    Simmer the cut tofu in salted water for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 3.
    Remove the tofu from the salted water, place them in a few paper towels, allow the tofu to cool down a little bit then press them gently to remove the water.
  • 4.
    Season the tofu filets with chicken rub on both sides. Reserve.
  • 5.
    Make the breading by adding the chickpea flour in one dish along with the salt, pepper, paprika, and water, and mix to incorporate everything. On another plate add the breadcrumbs.
  • 6.
    Now dip the tofu filets into the chickpea mix, allow it to drip the excess mixture, then place it in the breadcrumbs, covering the filet completely with breadcrumbs.
  • 7.
    Spray the tofu filets with cooking oil then air fry them for 20 minutes at 180C flipping them halfway through the cooking time.
  • 8.
    Make the gooey stretchable vegan mozzarella cheese: in a pot, add all the ingredients for the cheese, stir to combine, then turn on the heat to medium-low and stir until the cheese thickens up.
  • 9.
    Add a few tablespoons of the homemade tomato sauce onto a baking dish, place the filets, cover them with the mozzarella cheese, and bake it in a preheated 200C oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese looks grilled.
