Tofu Sticks

One of my favorite finger foods are tofu sticks. They’re a great protein rich snack and can be made in so many different flavors. This Asia-inspired version with spicy flavors, sesame seeds and peanut dipping sauce is amazing, and a perfect snack for pot lucks, movie nights and BBQ-evenings!

I often find myself with leftover strips of tofu after having cut them off when making shaped for other things, so these tofu sticks are also perfect for using those leftover strips. 🙂
