By Robert J. Matthews

Ingredients:

1 block of firm tofu 1 cup breadcrumbs (panko breadcrumbs work well) 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 6 tablespoons water) or regular eggs if not vegan Salt and pepper to taste Vegetable oil for frying

Instructions:

3

In one bowl, place the flour. In another bowl, make the flax eggs (or beat the regular eggs).

4

Dip each tofu slice into the flour, making sure it's well coated. Then dip it into the flax egg (or regular egg).

Once the tofu is golden brown and crispy, remove it from the pan and place it on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
