Tofu Nuggets With Fries & Black Bean Gravy

I decided to create my own, somewhat healthy, vegan version of chicken nuggets and fries with gravy. I think the black bean gravy is my new favourite thing to eat right now. So tasty!


tofu nuggets
pressed tofu
bread crumbs
bragg/maggi seasoning
salt and pepper
vegetable stock
onion powder
chopped parsely

seasoned fries
potatoes (1 per person)
seasoned salt
cracked pepper
cooking oil

black bean gravy
half can black beans
2 cups vegetable stock
bragg/maggi seasoning
corn starch
salt and pepper
onion powder

How to Prepare Tofu Nuggets:
1. Cut the tofu into medium sized squares. Mix the maggi or bragg, salt and pepper, vegetable stock, parsley and onion powder in a bowl. Place the tofu in the mixture and let soak for at least two hours.

2. Once the tofu is marinated, dip each piece into a bowl of bread crumbs with salt and pepper. Cook them on a pan with margarine on medium heat until each side is golden brown.

How To Prepare Seasoned Fries:
1. Wash and cut potatoes into long, thin, fry-shaped pieces. Lightly sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper.

2. Coat a baking pan with cooking oil. Place the fries on evenly and bake in the oven at 350 degrees. Flip and/or shake fries every five minutes or so and cook until golden brown.

How To Prepare Black Bean Gravy
1. Cook vegetable stock, bragg seasoning, onion powder, and salt and pepper in a saucepan under medium heat.

2. Blend the vegetable stock mixture and the black beans in a blender until well mixed and smooth.

3. Place mixture back in saucepan and simmer under medium-low heat. Add cornstarch if necessary to achieve the consistency you want.

The black bean gravy is a good idea, it sounds really simple to make. And it all looks delish.
