Chickpea Tofu

Nutritionist Maya Feller's favorite legume for weight loss is a chickpea because one cup has almost 20 grams of protein to keep you full and satisfied. YouTube stars Joslyn and Erin put together a chickpea tofu recipe as an alternative protein source. Whip up this trendy food in a few minutes.  

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • parsley
  • turmeric

Directions

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. 

 

2. Add mixture into one and a half cups boiling water for five to six minutes until it begins to get slightly brown in color (almost like it's being caramelized). 

 

3. Pour liquid into an 8 x 8 baking sheet, refrigerate for one hour and slice into tofu cubes. Enjoy by itself or add it into a recipe like buffalo tofu wraps.
