What You'll Need

  • 2 blocks firm or extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

How to Make It

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice tofu into strips and coat well with flour.

In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk together the soy milk, soy sauce and lemon juice. In a separate bowl or pie plate, combine bread crumbs, nori and lemon pepper.

Carefully dip floured tofu in soy milk mixture, then coat well in bread crumbs.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning over once, until crispy and golden brown. Or, pan fry on both sides in a bit of oil.
