    Bergy's Note:

    This is so simple and so tasty. Leftovers (if there are any) make a great sandwich. Try mixing cumin and garlic for the spice.

      The nutritional yeast gives the tofu a bit of a cheesy flavor, which was so good! I usually don't like tofu unless mixed into a soup or casserole, but this is REALLY good. I also liked the texture of the tofu fried. I cut the recipe in half, so didn't have leftovers. Wish I did. Can't wait to make a tofu sandwich like you suggest, Bergy!

      Very creative use of nutritional yeast! I cut mine up pretty small, and with the higher breading to tofu ratio they were pretty good chicken nugget analogues. You could freeze the tofu first and add corn starch and/or bread crumbs to the coating to make them even more like nuggets.

      This was REALLY good. Actually my first experience with nutritional yeast and I loved it. I'm not sure what the spice mixture was- cumin, I know, but my boyfriend concocted it. Delicious and easy. I pressed my tofu for maybe 10 minutes, too. I used canola oil to fry in (couldn't figure out where I put the olive oil). Excellent, excellent, excellent- we will be making this again...and again...and again... ;)
