Ingredients
 

  • 200 g firm tofu
  • Marinade;
  • 3 tbsp Miso paste
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional yeast
  • Breadcrumb ingredients
  • 80 g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Method;
  • Press the tofu to remove any excess moisture.
  • Slice the tofu into 2 approx 1-2 cm thick large slices.
  • Whisk together your marinade ingredients. In a large flat bowl or plate coat the tofu all over in the marinade doing your best to use up all the marinade to coat the tofu.
  • Mix your breadcrumb ingredients together on a large plate. Remove about ⅓ of the breadcrumbs to add to the top of the marinated tofu. Remove your tofu slice from the marinade. Place on top of the breadcrumbs. Now add the remaining breadcrumbs to the top of the tofu, making sure to press the breadcrumbs on all sides so they stick to the tofu.
  • Heat 1 -2 tbsp of olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium to high heat. When hot add the breaded tofu and cook for 5 minutes on each side, turning gently, until golden brown and crispy. Serve with your favourite sides or in an epic sandwich!
