I cleaned this up to print it. I hope it comes out okay when I try to 
post it. Keep your fingers crossed.

             Oven-Fried Breast Of Tofu 

    Recipe By : "The Almost No-fat cookbook" by Bryanna Clark Grogan 
              1 1/2 cups water 
              1/4 cup soy sauce 
              tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes 
              teaspoons crumbled sage leaves -- or 1tsp. powdered                
              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 
              1cup Seasoned Flour 
              ***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 

I fry the slices after marinating , without the seasoning flour and eat 
hot or cold, delicious either way.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. 

Marinade 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 
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
