5.0 (1 reviews)

1 lb. firm tofu
Egg Replacer equivalent to 1 egg
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dried basil
Dash dried thyme
Oil for frying

• Cut the tofu into 1/4-inch thick slices. Wrap the slices in thick paper towels and pat to remove excess moisture.
• Beat the egg replacer and soy sauce together in a small bowl. Combine the wheat germ, cornmeal, paprika, basil, and thyme on a plate.
• Heat the oil in a large skillet. Dip each slice of tofu into the egg replacer mixture, then coat both sides in the wheat germ mixture. Fry the slices until golden brown on both sides. Serve with tofu tartar sauce (see recipe).
