Tofu Parm - Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 5 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp dried oregano, divided
  • 1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon oregano, salt, and black pepper.

Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices, and dry pieces with a paper towel. One at a time, press tofu slices into crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides.

Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Cook tofu slices until crisp on one side. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil, turn, and brown on the other side.

Combine tomato sauce, basil, garlic, and remaining oregano. Place a thin layer of sauce in an 8 inch square baking pan. Arrange tofu slices in the pan. Spoon remaining sauce over tofu. Top with shredded mozzarella and remaining 3 tablespoons Parmesan.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
