      This is a great recipe for frying tofu -- it stayed nice and firm, but I cooked it for 4 minutes over high heat and it came out with a dark crust. I lowered the heat to about medium/medium-high and cooked the other side for 4 minutes. That side was nicely browned and crisp. I cut away the dark side of the tofu before serving, and I could then taste the great seasonings in the herb crust. No bland tofu taste in this recipe, and the mushroom gravy was great over it. Next time I'll cook the tofu on the lower heat and double the gravy -- it was so good that everyone wanted enough to mix in with the rice I served alongside. I'm really glad I found a tofu recipe that is finally crispy, as my son and DH loved it this way. REVISED review -- we loved the taste of this recipe, so I made it again yesterday, cooking over medium heat on each side -- on our stove it came out perfect at that setting -- crunchy crust and great flavor!

      Great recipe. I was serving with mashed potatoes, so I doubled the gravy recipe so we would have planty. Glad I did. I will be using this part of the recipe for other things, too. The tofu turned out crispy, though I personally find tofu to be a bit bland so might marinate it next time, say with a balsamic mixture. But as written, everyone else loved it. I will cut the amount of cornstarch next time also, but I used the some of the extra herbed cornstarch for the gravy and bagged the rest for later use.

      Tofu perfectly cooked! This was so crunch and then soft in the middle. Make sure to eat it when hot for the best texture. Very flavorful too - which I admit I was a bit skeptical of. I did decrease the cornstarch in the breading by half but kept the spices the same amounts. Otherwise, followed to a T. Thanks so much Sharon for a different way to make tofu!
