Oven-Fried Breast Of Tofu: another try

Thanks, Jan, for sending what you received. The recipe was interesting, so
I corrected the ingredients list by eliminating all occurrences of A0=.  I
hope this works for everyone else, too, and is correct.  Please note that
the paragraph beginning "To cook . . . following" may be incomplete. 

Oven-Fried Breast Of Tofu
"The Almost No-fat cookbook" by Bryanna Clark Grog

1 1/2 c. water
1/4 cup soy sauce 
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes 
2 teaspoons crumbled sage leaves -- or 1 tsp. powdered sage 
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary 
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 
1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
2 pounds reduced-fat (firm or medium-firm) regular tofu 
1 cup Seasoned Flour 
2 cups whole wheat flour or other grain flour 
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon onion powder -- (opt.) 
pepper to taste (see directions)

Prepare Breast of Tofu Marinade by combining in a 2-quart bowl: water, soy
sauce, nutritional yeast flakes, crumbled sage leaves, or powdered sage,
dried rosemary, dried thyme, onion powder.
Instead of all or some of the traditional "poultry seasonings" (thyme,
sage, rosemary, etc.), use cumin, coriander, basil, oregano, or whatever
herbs are suitable for the dish you are making. For spicy Breast of Tofu,
add as much Louisiana-style hot sauce to the marinade as you like. 
Rinse, drain and squeeze liquid from tofu that has been frozen. Cut into
1/2-inch thick slices. 

Marinate the tofu slices for as little as a few hours or as long as a few
days(in the refrigerator). Turn the slices or spoon over the marinade from
time to time, or store in a tightly lidded container, and shake. 

To cook, preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and coat the tofu slices in
flour, following 

Lay the slices in single layers, not touching, on two lightly greased,
dark-colored cookie sheets (the tofu won't brown properly on shiny aluminum
sheets). Bake until the bottoms are golden, about 15 minutes. Turn the
pieces over and bake until the other sides are golden, about 15 minutes
more. Use immediately or cool on racks and refrigerate. 

The slices will keep well wrapped in the refrigerator for several days.
Cold Breast of Tofu slices can be used as a sandwich "meat." Try them diced
and mixed with celery and Tofu mayonnaise, for an excellent sandwich
filling or hearty salad to serve on lettuce leaves. Serve hot slices topped
with any sauce suitable for chicken or veal. Use in your favorite
casseroles, or slivered in a chef's salad instead of chicken.
