Chopped Junior-Inspired Lunchboxes: Tofu Cocktail

Try a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.

This week’s mystery baskets on Chopped Junior were filled with sweet ingredients like gingerbread cookies, birthday cake and candy dots! But when it came time to develop a lunchbox dish, we decided to go for savory and focused on the tofu from the appetizer challenge.

And that led us to tofu cocktail, which is similar to the traditional shrimp cocktail: Chunks of skewered firm tofu are served with lemon wedges and cocktail sauce. Sprinkle the tofu with a little seafood seasoning, like Old Bay.

Tune in Tuesday at 8|7 c to see which contestant wins $10,000. And keep coming back every Wednesday for a new recipe idea that will set your lunchbox apart from the rest, Chopped Junior style.
