    veg head 4-ever's Note:

    Ok, this one might be a hard sell for the tofu first-timers, but every veg head knows this recipe as a standard way to bread and pan-fry tofu. I first heard it from my friend's Mom (a lifetime vegetarian) when I was 16 years old. I've seen a variation of it in the "New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook" as well. Veg head or not, give it a try, its pretty fabulous and delicious. fyi: Nutritional yeast is a non-active yeast loaded with B vitamins and protein, and it tastes a little cheesy, and little bread-like.

      I have been a vegetarian for 16 years and a tofu lover for even longer, yet I had never had tofu prepared this way! It's quite good - and easy and healthy. I think I'll try it cubed next time, and maybe marinate it first.

      None vegan me really liked this! Nice way to have quick nutritious snack or meal. A creamier way to enjoy tofu and the yeast gives a slight buttery saltiness on it's own.(My HF store owner says people use it on popcorn) I might have drained my tofu too much as some of the yeast fell off in the frying(I used the "plate method")or maybe the oil wasn't hot enough. I steamed some broccoli and use a light soy sauce that I put grated ginger and garlic and let flavor the sauce (a tip from a Zaar member). I like the toast idea and will try that next time! I've also seen it cubed as an appetizer.
