Tofu “Fries”

Written by COA Nutrition Team On January 25, 2018

Ready to give tofu a chance? This is the way to go…

These Tofu “fries” are a highly nutritious, protein-rich option for lunch, dinner or even a snack. Kid Approved!

INGREDIENTS:

  • One 8 ounces extra firm tofu block
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ tsp. dry thyme
  • Olive oil for sautéing
  • Salt and pepper to taste
    (Serving suggestion: Organic ketchup on the side)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Drain the tofu and slice it into sticks (about ½ inch by 2 inches)
  2. In a small bowl, beat the egg and pour it in a plate. In another plate combine the breadcrumbs with the thyme, season it to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Coat all the sticks with the egg and the breadcrumbs, in that order.
  4. Over medium-high heat coat a large sauté pan with olive oil. Place the coated tofu sticks in the pan when its hot enough to make a sizzling sound. Pan-sear all the sides of the sticks until golden-brown. Sprinkle more salt if necessary.
  5. Serve them warm with organic ketchup on the side.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Embrace Leftovers”

I’m always shocked when people tell me they “don’t like leftovers”. Leftovers are a busy person’s best friend! Cook once and eat three or four times? Sign me up! Of course, not everything is delicious leftover. Cooked fish is better off made into fish cakes or added to a salad than reheated. Leftover cooked greens can be mushy. Salads that are pre-tossed with dressing get wilted and slimy.

But many things are delicious leftover. Soup, chili, cooked chicken, beef or pork, curry, and casseroles are all fantastic the next day. Some dishes even taste better when the flavors have had a chance to meld.
