Panko Tofu

There are times when I just don’t want meat. So, what is the next best thing? Tofu. Did you know that when you fix Tofu it will take on whatever flavor you cook with it. Also, it comes in all forms; crumble, soft to extra firm. Depending on how you want to prepare it; will depend on which form you will choose. In this dish I have used the firm form. With it as well as with the extra firm you can slice it and pan fry or bake it. You can pretty much prepare it as you would a piece of meat. So, the following is one of my dishes that I like to prepare when I just don’t want the heavy feeling you get after eating meat.

  1. 1/2 block of firm Tofu
  2. 1 small squash
  3. 1 small zucchini
  4. 1 small Onion
  5. 1 clove of Garlic minced
  6. Sesame Seed Oil
  7. 1/2 teaspoon Ms Dash table blend
  8. 1/2 cup of Panko Breadcrumbs
  9. 1 Sweet Poatato

 

Preheat oven to 350. Place Tofu in a towel and place on plate and then place another plate on top of that to help squeeze out excess water for about 30 min. On a separate plate, place panko breadcrumbs and add Ms Dash table blend and mix well. Cut Tofu into 3 pieces  and coat with breadcrumbs and place on a lightly coated baking sheet and bake for 25 – 30 min. Place sweet potato in aluminum foil and bake with Tofu. Cut squash and zucchini long ways and set aside. Slice onion and saute in olive oil and garlic until onions are cooked to your liking. Add squash and zucchini then cook to desired tenderness. After plating lightly drizzle sesame seed oil over Tofu. Happy Eating, Enjoy.
