Review from the Toronto Vegetarian Association
This recipe was sent to me by Farm Sanctuary when I adopted some turkeys.
I have to say, I was very impressed with it.
It was better than I thought it would be.
My mom, sister, uncle, and brother enjoyed it.
None of them have ever eaten tofu except mixed into other things, so that was pretty impressive.
Of course, my husband loved it too, which is no surprise because he's a big Tofu fan.
Oh, I believe this recipe is written by Joanne Stepaniak and can probably be found in her book Vegan Vittles.
At least that's the impression I got from reading the flyer.
Also, I deep fried this instead of baking because I just got a deep fryer and wanted an excuse to use it!
Now, without further ado, here it is.

  • 1 pound regular tofu (firm), rinsed and patted dry
Marinade:
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon pultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • Coating Mix:
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and place them in a wide, shallow mixing bowl.

Place all the ingredients for the marinade in small mixing bowl and whisk them together.
Pour the marinade over the tofu, spooning it over each slice.
Turn the slices over so that all sides are coated well with the marinade.
Cover bowl and place in refrigerator.
Let tofu marinate for several hours or overnight, turning slices over occasionally.
When you are ready to cook the tofu, place the ingredients for coating mix in a shallow mixing bowl, and stir well.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mist a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.

Remove each slice of tofu from the marinade, and dredge it in the coating mix, covering it well all over.
Place tofu on baking sheet.
Mist the tops lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake the tofu until the bottoms are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Turn slices over, and bake until other sides are golden brown.
Makes about 8 slices (4 servings).
