Baked Tofu Fries

Despite criticism by most omnis, I really do like tofu. Since I became vegetarian at a fairly young age, I can't quite remember what the texture of meat is like, which probably allows me to appreciate tofu even more. When I'm feeling lazy I like to bake some tofu fries, they take less than ten minutes of active prep time and taste great.

All you need to do is cut the tofu into pieces that are about the length of your pinkie finger and twice as wide. Then toss each piece in a mixture that is about half bread crumbs (use premade or make your own by putting toast in the food processor) and half nutritional yeast. Add in some garlic powder, salt, and any other seasonings you like, toss the tofu on a pan, and stick it in the oven on broil. Broil the tofu until is is brown (varies depending on the size of your pieces, but probably about 10 minutes per side). Make sure to check the tofu every few minutes so it doesn't burn. When it is lightly browned flip it over and cook about ten more minutes. Serve plain or with ketchup. To make it even easier, I don't press the tofu or prep it in any way, I just use it straight from the package, the moisture helps it hold the breading.

Oh yum! I totally feel the same love for tofu, as well as the criticism I get for that love. I really want to try to bake tofu some time.

I'm trying to like tofu but it's definitely an acquired taste. Your little "fries" look pretty good though.

I am a tofu virgin, but I have picked up a lot of good ideas from blogs recently. I love this recipe! I am going to have to make the leap! I used breadcrumbs today to make tiffin eggs (veggie scotch eggs), but I never though of toasting the bread first, does it make a big difference? Anyway, I will be posting the Tiffin Eggs tomorrow if you are interested. I have too much studying to do to post it tonight! Why are you blogging then, I hear you cry, well I am really avoiding getting on with it!

Anyway just to let you know that I have linked to your Baked Tofu Fries as a perfect Vegetarian Snack during National Vegetarian Week here in the UK. Hope that's ok!

sounds great. I'm going to give this a try. I like baked sweet potato fries and baked butternut squash fries, so I bet these tofu fries would be a favorite of mine too.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
