 Oven-Fried Breast Of Tofu 

Recipe By : "The Almost No-fat cookbook" by Bryanna Clark Grog=
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00 
 1 1/2 cups 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.)

I fry the slices after marinating , without the seasoning flour and
eat ho= t 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 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
aluminu= m 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

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 dice= d and mixed with celery and Tofu mayonnaise, for an
excellent sandwich filling or hearty salad to serve on lettuce
leaves. Serve hot slices toppe= d with any sauce suitable for chicken
or veal. Use in your favorite casseroles , or slivered in a chef's
salad instead of chicken.

Seasoned Flour Mix together: 2 cups whole wheat flour or other grain
flour 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. onion
powder(opt.)  pepper to taste Store in tightly covered container in
the refrigerator.
