I am currently in the Seattle area with my vegetarian daughter and family, so we are exploring vegetarian recipes. This is like eggplant or chicken Parmesan, but with tofu. It’s easy to make and very yummy. You will need –
- a package of tofu
- 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 5 tbsp parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- olive oil for frying
- jar of your favorite pasta sauce
- 4 oz (1 cup) grated mozzarella cheese
mix the bread crumbs, 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese and the oregano in a bowl
slice the tofu in 1/4 – 1/2 inch slices, coat with bread crumb mixture, and fry in olive oil until golden brown (on both sides)
Put a thin layer of pasta sauce in a casserole dish, then add the fried tofu. Spoon over more pasta sauce until covered. Top with the mozzarella cheese and the rest of the Parmesan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and sauce is starting to bubble.
Let cool for a minute while you get the rest of dinner together, serve, and enjoy!
This was our dinner last night. I put the broccoli with a sprinkle of water in the microwave for 4 minutes. (if it isn’t cooked enough, put it back for another minute).
Yum! We just had tofu browned up like that last night with stir fry veggies on the side.
Oooh, good stuff! 🙂
