Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take your tofu and cut it into 1/2-inch thick slabs across the short side of the tofu block and set them aside.
  2. In a shallow, non-reactive bowl, combine your buttermilk and herbs and add the tofu to that bowl and turn it to coat well.
  3. Let stand 20 minutes in this mixture.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the cornflakes with the salt and cayenne and place it in a flat, wide dish.
  5. Heat your olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and coat your tofu slabs in the cornflake mixture, making sure to press the cornflakes gently into the tofu to cover.
  6. Place the coated tofu slabs in the heated pan and allow them to cook for 4 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Turn the tofu and cook on the other side 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Serve immediately or place on a baking pan in a 200-degree oven to keep warm until ready to serve.

great flavor. i had trouble making the corn flake mixture stick to the tofu, it came off in the pan during cooking and also transferring, but maybe i didn't press the tofu enough.

I made a half recipe of this for my husband and myself and it was delicious. I let the cut slabs of tofu drain for an hour on paper towels, then marinated them in the buttermilk and herb (I used basil and thyme) mixture for a bit more than an hour. I used my food processor and ground the corn flakes pretty well, added the spices and used a bit more oil for cooking (my tofu was pretty well coated)...we like our tofu crunchy! I served this with warmed marinara sauce and it was a really great lunch! Thanks L4C for a wonderful recipe that I'll be making again quite soon :)
