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

  2. press the water from the tofu cutlets for about 15 minutes.

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!
