1 pkg Sunrise Medium Firm Tofu
1 shallot , diced
1-2 garlic cloves , minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp orange zest
1 tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp ground sage
1-2 tsp gochujang Paste
½ cup cornstarch
½ cup Sunrise Unsweetened Soya Beverage 1.89L
4 cups cornflakes , crushed
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
fresh Ground pepper to taste


  1. Wrap tofu in paper towel and press excess water out by weighing down with a heavy pan for 10 minutes, removing as much liquid as possible.
  2. Combine all marinade ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Tear tofu into large bite-size chunks and place in marinade, stir to coat well and let sit 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Preheat oven (or air fryer) to 400°F. Prepare for breading the tofu.  Place corn starch in a shallow bowl.  Soy milk in another small bowl, and in a separate shallow bowl combine the cornflakes, smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Remove tofu from marinade, drain off excess liquid. Coat the tofu pieces with cornstarch. Then individually dip tofu pieces in the soy milk, briefly let drain off excess milk and then dredge in the cornflake coating. Set aside on a large baking sheet evenly spaced apart.
  5. Bake at for 17-20 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking. If air frying, set for 10-12 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
  6. Serve with your favourite taco toppings!
