Bite-sized pieces of tofu are breaded with homemade whole wheat bread crumbs, then pan-fried for a special treat! Anyone who is skeptical about tofu will change their mind when they eat these tofu nuggets! Serve with ketchup (or other condiments) and enjoy!

Directions

  • Cut each tofu slice into thirds, widthwise. Press each slice between paper towels to drain as much liquid as possible. Place on a plate and freeze, about 1 hour.

  • Place bread in a food processor. Add Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil, and marjoram. Blend to make fine bread crumbs. Pour into a small bowl.

  • Beat egg in a bowl. Dip tofu slices into egg and coat in bread crumbs. Place breaded tofu on a plate. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place 1/3 of the tofu into the pan. Cook, turning over halfway, until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining tofu.

Cook's Notes:

You can use regular Italian-seasoned bread crumbs if you wish.

You can make this in the deep-fryer as well.

I just made these tonight for my vegetarian daughter. I did use storebought Italian breadcrumbs instead of making them myself but the cooking technique is great. The tofu had great texture and she gobbled them up. Thanks for a great recipe!

I absolutely loved these. I used whole grain gluten free toasts instead of bread. The flavor is very nice. Using frozen tofu is my new go-to method for tofu. The texture was chewy like biting into a chicken tender. Not a fan of rosemary I subbed mustard seeds. Thank you for the recipe.

Easy, yummy and versatile. My seven year old daughter did the dredging and coating, I did the frying. Gobbled them up. We used just panko, salt, parmesan and garlic.
