DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the breadcrumbs, flaxseed meal, parmesean, and paprika in a small bowl.
  • Mix the vegetable puree and egg together in a flat bowl.
  • Slice or cube the tofu into bite sized pieces. You can use any shape you want, including cookie cutters. Sprinkle the tofu with the salt.
  • Dip the tofu into the egg mixture, then roll in the breadcrumbs until the tofu is completed coated and you can't see the puree.
  • Spray a large nonstick pan with cooking spray, heat the pan, then add the oil.
  • Cook the tofu over medium heat 3-4 minutes to a side, being careful not to overbrown. Cook until the coating is crisp and golden on all sides.
  • Note: the recipe for chicken nuggets is almost identical, but calls for using broccoli, spinach, sweet potato, or beet puree.
