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!
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... ;)
AMAZING!!! <br/>This was my first time cooking tofu. I wanted to start out with a simple recipe, because I was a bit intimidated. The Nutritional Yeast gives the tofu a panko bread crumb type of coating which is absolutely deee-lish!<br/><br/>I used my McCormick Italian Herb Grinder for my spices and it was perfect. It gave the tofu an "Italian chicken cutlet" flavor.<br/><br/>I taste-tested these at different points while they were cooking. My advice is to really brown them (I do tend to like things a tad overdone, that's just my preference).<br/>**For anyone who's new to tofu, be sure to really press the water out of the tofu.<br/><br/>My husband literally can't keep his hands off of these (says I "knocked it out of the park") and I'm afraid there won't be any left for dinner!!<br/><br/>I am sure I'll be making this weekly. Thanks for sharing! :)
I made the mistake of using Spike seasoning which, along with the soy sauce made it too salty! I will try another kind of seasoning, perhaps some of the suggestions here. I also felt it was too high in fat so will try cutting back on the fat by using cooking spray instead of all that oil. I ended up adding cooking time this time anyway to prevent sticking of the last few slices. It did have a good flavor and think with these adjustments I would like it better. It is very different than any other tofu dish (and I do like tofu) I have tasted. Thanks.

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
