Tofu Parmigiana

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (219 votes)

Instead of having a greasy, battered coating, the tofu “steaks” in our revamped Parmigiana are breaded and lightly pan-fried in just a small amount of oil then topped with part-skim mozzarella, fresh basil and your favorite marinara sauce. This Italian classic will please even those who are tofu-phobic.

"I made this with daiya (vegan) cheese and it was delish. Served it with a little angel hair and a spinach salad. "

First time cooking with Tofu...

I am new at Tofu, but learning how I can improve on flavor and texture...I added my own spin on some of the ingredients...overall, I will make again!

Easy and delish!..

This was very tasty. I used Italian-flavored baked tofu. Warning: leftovers are gross.


This is easily one of my favorite EatingWell tofu recipes. It's a really nice diversion from the standard tofu and veggie stir-fries. Lots of flavor and very filling. Even my husband (who is not a huge fan of tofu) thought it was great. We will definitely be making this again!

Great flavors, quick

Delicious, quick and easy! What more could you ask for?

I didn't have any Italian herbs pre-packed, so used Oregano, Basil and Rosemary. I also used much more than the recommended amount of the herbs, which made the tofu very tasty.

I added some salt and pepper, as well as the herbs to the mushroom and onions, to bring the flavours all the way through.

I didn't have any mozzarella, so instead used low-fat grated cheese.

As someone who is new to Tofu, I think I can quite easily say this is the dish to convert Tofu nay-sayer's. Will definitely make this again!

Delicious, quick and easy.

I pressed my tofu for a few hours for a meatier, firmer texture. Also used soy cheese and served over whole wheat pasta and a side salad. A keeper!
