DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in the skillet.
  • Add the sesame seeds.
  • While these are heating, dredge each slice of tofu in the nutritional yeast flakes until both sides are generously coated.
  • When the seeds start to sizzle, arrange the tofu in the skillet.
  • Drizzle the tamari over the top.
  • Turn the slices and fry on both sides until crispy and brown. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on how you like it.
  • For the gravy, leave the skillet as it is from making the fried chicken tofu.
  • Add the margarine and let it melt.
  • Stir in the flour and yeast until mixed, and let brown a little (but not burn) on medium-low heat.
  • Add your liquid and continue stirring until thickened.
  • Add salt, pepper, and tamari to taste.
