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.
My boyfriend and I attempted to make this dish tonight. Though ours did not come out perfect like the picture, the dish was none the less tasty and delicious. I was very surprised that the tofu was so fulfilling. I'm a 100% meat lover so it was a shocker that it tasted delicious without meat.
Tofu was very fulfilling. Pasta didn't need meat whatsoever!
So nice to have a alternative to tofu stir fry. Very savoury, great texture- I think it actually tastes better than with chicken. Baked it in the oven for 10 min at 350 to finish it off. Perfect dinner to make wehnyour are entertaining both meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Also quite affordable as ingredients cost less than $10 to feed family of 4. My 1 year old gobbled up this meal.
This Tofu Parm dish is outstanding! It's an easy way to make tofu really flavorful. I served it over some spaghetti with a side of broccoli, and it was a fantastic meal. Make sure you really dry off the tofu before seasoning it and adding the breadcrumbs. Also, don't flip the tofu 'steaks' over too often in the pan... Too much flipping could make the breadcrumbs fall off. Next time I'll be adding in a bunch of fresh herbs from my garden!
I loved this recipe. I was looking for something to use some tofu I had gotten on sale, so I did this one because I love chicken parmigiana, so the chance to substitute the chicken for a healthier tofu alternative was just great! It filled me and my mom up and there were even leftovers for the next day.
