Ingredients for the tofu:

  • 1 cup Anthony’s Goods Chickpea Flour 
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 cups water, divided

Ingredients for the spicy sauce

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup Sriracha 
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp minced ginger 
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Oil an 8x8 baking dish and set aside.
  2. Whisk the chickpea flour, salt, turmeric and 1 cup water in a saucepan and let rest for 15 minutes. Whisk occasionally to break up lumps.

  4. Pour the mixture into a baking dish and smooth it over. Place in the fridge to set (about 30 minutes).
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the spicy sauce by mixing all the ingredients in a small bowl.
