It's really simple and really tasty. Make some gravy and serve with collards or hoppin' john.


  1. slice tofu into cutlets about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. press the water from the tofu cutlets for about 15 minutes.
  3. coat cutlets in nutritional yeast.
  4. in a large skillet (cast iron works best) heat oil over medium-low heat. when oil shimmers add tofu, dropping a small amount of shoyu onto each cutlet.
  5. when the cutlets get brown on the bottom (4-5 minutes) flip and brown on the other side.
  6. serve with gravy and enjoy.

I've had this many times at home and it's delicious. I would definitely go tofu/gravy/mashed potatos and then brocolli or a heavy green veg like that. Amazing winter vegan food!
