Gather the ingredients.
First, prepare your tofu. Like most vegan tofu recipes, this one will taste best if you press the tofu first. This allows the tofu to absorb more of the flavorings and seasonings you add to it. In this recipe, the tofu will need to absorb chili powder and cayenne pepper. Note: Not sure how to press tofu? It's simple, and it just takes a few minutes. See this easy step-by-step guide on pressing tofu.
Preheat the oven to 400 F and lightly brush a baking pan with olive oil.
Slice the tofu into rectangular strips, about 1/2 inch thick.
Combine the nutritional yeast, flour, cornmeal, and spices until well mixed.
Place the tofu in the cornmeal mixture a few pieces at a time and coat well. Place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly golden brown, then flip the tofu over and bake for another 5 minutes.
- This cornmeal breaded tofu can also be lightly fried in oil for a few minutes on each side until lightly golden brown.
