Just tried this tonight and it was soooo yummy! I made a couple of changes such as a little Mrs. Dash on the tofu as it drained on the paper towels, added mushrooms to the sauce and threw some fresh baby spinach on top of the tofu before adding the sauce and cheeses. Maybe next time I'll try some other veggie combination additions. This one was definitely a win though! Thanks!
This was awesome. Chicken Parmesan is my favorite dish ever, and after trying to tofu version I must say that not much has changed. My favorite thing to do is use three kinds of cheeses. Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Romano. I also prefer diced tomatoes as opposed to a sauce which I find more messy. Firming the tofu was easy as well with a press I got from TofuXpress. Great recipe!!
I followed the instructions directly and it didn't come out well. The taste wasn't bad but it definitely wasn't Caesar. I mixed it with some tomatoes and baked it on crusty bread and it came out nicely.
