Crispy fried tofu


1 package Morinaga Silken Tofu – Extra Firm

2 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce or tamari

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 tsp. dehydrated vegetable seasoning

1 Tbsp. canola oil


One day before: Cut tofu into 3 slices, about 1/4 inch thick. Wrap individually in plastic, freeze overnight on baking sheet.


Before cooking: Defrost and drain slices on paper towels.


Pour tamari or soy sauce into 9-inch square glass baking dish. In another bowl, combine nutritional yeast with seasoning. Dip tofu slices into tamari, then yeast/seasoning mixture to coat both sides.


Pan-fry coated tofu in oil over medium heat, 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn and repeat.


Alternative to pan-frying: Place tofu on a lightly oiled or non-stick baking sheet, then bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until brown.
