  • Fork
  • Tablespoon
  • Pan
  • 2 x Chopping Board
  • Baking Tray
  • Oven


  1. Place the Couscous in a pan then cover with boiled water, leave to soak in, fluff with a fork then set to one side 
  2. Press the Tofu between two chopping boards to remove as much moisture as possible, then cut into cubes
  3. Place the Couscous in a mixing bowl, then add the Herbs, Spices, and Seasoning and mix together 
  4. Meanwhile, set the oven to 180c and spritz a baking tray with oil 
  5. In a separate dish, add the Chia Protein Powder to 7-10 tablespoons of water and mix thoroughly - you want a thinly gloopy consistency so add a little more water if needed
  6. Dip each piece of Tofu in the Chia Protein Powder mixture, then coat in Couscous
  7. If needs be, shape and press the Couscous mixture around the Tofu, until evenly coated
  8. Place onto non-stick or oiled baking tray then do the same with the rest
  9. Once all the pieces are on the baking tray, spritz with a little more oil then bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees C, or until golden and crispy
  10. Serve with the dip of your choice
