This dish makes and excellent Appetizer, Snack or Main Dish. It's also a great introduction into the vegan world, if you want to convert kids or meat-eaters to a healthier lifestyle. They taste great with sauces & dips or by themselves. You need to make a lot though. When I make them, they only last for a few minutes. You might want to double or triple this batch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Coat 1 cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  3. Get a wide shallow microwavable bowl and put the soy sauce, cornstarch, vinegar & water in it and whisk it until it's smooth.
  4. Place it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes and then whisk it again. It should be a sauce like consistency, not too thick, not too thin.
  5. Now get another wide shallow bowl and put the panko crumbs, garlic granules, poultry seasoning & sea salt in it.
  6. Drain the packages of tofu and cut into strips the size and length of a finger. There should be 8 strips to a package of tofu.
  7. Use the Wet Hand-Dry Hand method of soaking the tofu strips into the wet mixture of soy sauce and corn starch with your wet hand, then placing them one or two at a time into the crumbs and coating them with your dry hand.
  8. Place the strips onto the cookie sheet and place them in the oven.
  9. Cook for approximately 10 to 15 minutes and then turn the oven heat off and let them sit in there to dry out and stiffen up to your likeness.
  10. Cut these strips in half if you'd like to make more of them. Serve and enjoy!

How can you use poultry seasoning in a vegan recipe?

These are nice - I wanted something different to do with tofu. I like the crisp breading. Even DH liked them. I only made one package of tofu, so I cut the recipe down. I did run out of bread crumbs - maybe I didn't measure right. Thanks for posting!

Surprisingly enough, I didn't really like these. I'm not going to give them any stars this time and try to tinker with the recipe. I think the biggest thing is that I should have frozen and thawed the tofu first. I thought the poultry seasoning was overpowering, too. I think next time I'll skip the cornstarch and just marinade the thawed tofu in the broth.
