Chili Crunch Tofu

Chili Crunch Tofu

Holy spicy crispiness! This chili crunch tofu is chompy, sticky-sweet, and delicious. Two main steps for this guy:

  • Bake the tofu.
  • Sauce the tofu.

The end! Happy day! You’re eating spicy, crispy, rockstar-level tofu with very little effort or thought into the whole thing which is what the SOS series is all about.

You can prep the tofu however you like, but I highly recommend the cornstarch method for baking (my favorite method as outlined in our tofu post), which is what’s written into the recipe here. It never fails to be miraculously crispy, golden, and the perfect canvas for your favorite sauce.

Speaking of sauce, this one couldn’t be easier.

  • Yum Yum sauce
  • Chili crisp
  • Honey (optional)

I love making this chili crunch tofu for a quick high-protein weeknight dinner and the leftovers work beautifully for a repeat lunch with a second coating of sauce. And we make this recipe a whole family affair by just saucing the tofu for the girls with the plain Yum Yum sauce, which is creamy and sweet and mild and, of course, they love it.


Chili Crunch Tofu:

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Yum Yum sauce (affiliate link)
  • 1 tablespoon chili crisp (affiliate link)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • Extras:

  • Rice for serving (see notes for the cauli rice I like to make!)
  • Green onions for topping
  • Like!
