• medium-firm tofu

Squeeze out the liquid from the medium-firm tofu and drain.
Dry the tofu by using a clean kitchen towel.
Break into large chunks.
Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add a cup of gluten-free flour.
Season with 1/2 tsp of white pepper, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of garlic powder, and 1 tsp of onion powder.
Add 1 tsp of nutritional yeast.

Pour 1/2 cup of ice-cold water.
Whisk until smooth and well combined.
Add 1/4 cup of ice-cold water to make the mixture thinner.
Whisk to combine.
Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, pour a cup of double-strength vegan chicken-style broth.
Add the tofu chunks into the bowl.
Press the tofu to absorb the broth.
Once absorbed, drain the excess liquid.
Place the tofu chunks in the bowl of flour mixture.
Carefully coat each tofu chunk.
Transfer the chunks on a parchment-lined baking tray.

Add a cup of organic sprouted brown rice crisps into the flour mixture.

You can break some rice crisps into smaller pieces to form some texture in the coating.

Dip each flour-coated tofu chunk into the vegan egg mixture.
Coat with the flour and rice crisps mixture.
