Very tasty! I also froze/thawed/pressed my tofu. I also subbed half oregano, half thyme for the parsley and added 1/2 tsp of "chicken" broth powder. The spices as listed are delicious! I will be making this again! I'll cut the tofu into smaller pieces if I make this for non-tofu lovers so the nuggets are more crispy. Thanks for sharing!

WOW! So delicious! I froze, defrosted and pressed my tofu until about dry. I also used fresh parsley and fresh crushed garlic instead of powdered.

These were really good! Everyone in the house liked them, and we aren't vegan either! Next time I'll press the tofu on paper towel to get a little more liquid out. Used panko instead of regular breadcrumbs because most store bought breadcrumbs contain milk. Thanks GingerlyJ!
