Well what do you know tofu is actually a really good substitute to use as a bagel. I do have gluten free bagel recipes posted on my blog, but today I was simply to lazy to create any of those so I thought hmm this might work?
Super easy to make minimal ingredients snd what’s best is minimal clean up! Win win!
Extra firm tofu
1 dash turmeric
1/3 tsp onion powder
1/3 tsp garlic powder
Pinch or two of sea salt
Fresh cracked pepper
Dash or two of smoked paprika
Everything bagel seasoning for topping
Slice your tofu into three pieces that are about 1/2 inch thick it basically slices only into 3 pieces if you make them to that thickness. This takes skill to slice the tofu without crumbling it, but I believe in your tofu prep skills that you can accomplish this part. Take two of the slices and use a glass, circular cookie cutter, or mason jar top and make the tofu into circles. Then use a smaller circular object to take out the center so you have a bagel shape. I squeeze out most of the liquid from the tofu but don’t press it so the seasonings will simply stick without having to make a batter to get the seasoning to stay on. Do what you choose though.
In a bowl add the seasonings except the everything bagel seasoning. Stir seasonings to combine then sprinkle on the seasoning blend to season the tofu. I seasoned both sides.
I placed them on parchment paper then topped one side of each with everything bagel seasoning.
Bake at 420 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.
I topped mine with miyokos cream cheese and fresh avocado slices with added everything bagel seasoning.
