For vegan options
: Dissolve 1 tsp agar agar powder
with 1 cup hot boiling water. Skip 1 tbsp coconut or cassava flour in the recipe. And use either finely ground cashew flour or macadamia flour. Agar agar has stronger gel consistency than beef gelatin so you will not need coconut or cassava flour to bind the ingredients.
You cannot pan fry (heat) this version of the Paleo Cold Tofu.
The gelatin makes this Tofu Substitute recipe low in carb but it will melt when in contact with heat. I will share a second version that can be pan fried and without nuts soon. Please check back here often ! Thanks ! :)
Not sure what agar agar powder is ? Check out this article
and then decide if agar agar is okay for you or otherwise just use beef gelatin for extra protein & collagen ! I guarantee that you won’t taste the beef gelatin at all.
Beef gelatin to Agar agar ratio / conversion: 1 to 1 ¼ tbsp gelatin = 2 tbsp agar flakes = 1 tsp agar powder.
The nutrition label is calculated with beef gelatin, coconut flour, cashew flour, and without tahini paste for one serving out of four total.
