Pan fried tofu

    20 min

    Firm tofu breaded with nutritional yeast then pan-fried until golden brown. If you prefer to bake the tofu, you can place them on a nonstick baking tray and bake in a preheated oven (180 C / Gas 4) for 15 to 20 minutes.

    1. Slice tofu into 5mm slabs.
    2. Place nutritional yeast on a plate. Mix in garlic powder, salt and pepper.
    3. Roll tofu slices in the nutritional yeast mixture until evenly coated.
    4. Heat oil in a nonstick pan over low to medium heat. Add tofu slices; cook until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes per side.


    It's important to use firm, not extra-firm tofu, or else it will be too dry.
