As far as breaded tofu goes, I found this recipe in the January/February
issue of _Vegetarian Journal_ and tried it last Sunday. It is VERY salty and
if I ever make it again (my partner was NOT impressed), I certainly won't
add the salt. I used pressed, frozen tofu.

Crunchy "Chicken" Nuggets

1 pound firm tofu
1/4 cup bread crumbs (I ground up one slice of whole wheat bread in my
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut the tofu into bite-sized pieces. In a
plastic or paper bag, combine remaining ingredients. Place 4 or 5 tofu
pieces at a time into the bag and shake, placing on a non-stick baking pan
when coated. When all the tofu is coated, bake for 30 minutes.
