Panko Crusted Tofu – Weblog

The thoughts is all the pieces. What you suppose you develop into.

I first tried this recipe this summer season after drooling over the images within the Whitewater Cooks cookbook for years. The response from the Instagram group was swift and agency, Panko Crusted Tofu appeared scrumptious! And good factor the images don’t lie, this crusty fried tofu is filled with comforting vegetarian protein vibes, which is actually the position tofu performs in any vegetarian kitchen in my humble opinion. I would counsel doing the marinade within the morning and permitting the tofu to take in the flavours all through the day, after which all you need to do is coat the tofu in its scrumptious breadcrumb coating and you might be off to the races to fry them up.

Nice sauces to get pleasure from it with may very well be so simple as ketchup (rising up this was how we all the time ate tofu), or your fave scorching sauce, or perhaps a peanut sauce if you happen to wished to serve this tofu with noodles. The choices are all there, all you want is that this simple base to begin with.

Take pleasure in!
