Meatless Monday Recipe: Fried Tofu Squares

Photo: Brad Klopman

The seriously healthy might want to look away. These things are fried deliciousness!

I like to dip them into a soy sauce and fresh lemon juice concoction. I usually make rice or couscous and either a salad or sauteed spinach, and call it a meal.

I made these yesterday and the omnivores loved them! That's always saying something.

Fried Tofu Squares

1 package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed into towels to remove moisture, and cut into 2 inch squares. (Size is a preference. You could also cut the tofu into thinner long slices for sandwiches.)

4 T. oil (for frying.)

1/2 c. flour

3 T. nutritional yeast

1 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. dried sage

1/2 t. cayenne pepper

1/2 t. garlic powder

Sift the dry ingredients onto a plate. This is for breading your tofu.

Put oil in frying pan over med-high heat.

Roll tofu squares into the breading, getting a good coating.

Fry, turning over when well done to make sure all sides are fried. Add more oil as needed.

Dipping Sauce

1/4 c. soy sauce

1 T. fresh lemon juice

Happy fried vegan food!
