Tofu Balls

This dish is both a traditional dish and a snack. The key to this crispy and addictive fried snack is extracting as much liquid as possible from the tofu.


  • 2 tofu cubes, 180 g each
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp yeast flakes, can be omitted
  • 2 - 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons spicy mustard
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
  • salt and black pepper


  1. Dice the tofu into coarse cubes and put it with the other ingredients in the blender bowl.
  2. Blend until crumbly.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Make walnut-sized balls from the mixture.
  5. Fry the balls in a frying pan (30-60 seconds per side), turning them occasionally.
  6. Place the fried meatballs on a paper towel to drain the fat.
