Crispy "Cheesy" Tofu

Slice a block extra firm tofu into thin rectangles (drain water and press if you can, I have the Tofu Xpress)

Dredge slices in mixture of nutritional yeast and salt and any other spices you like

Heat oil or butter (I used coconut oil) in frying pan and fry for about 10 min. per side on medium heat, checking often to make sure it doesn't burn


  1. I recently froze the tofu and then defrosted it and then drained it and I was able to press it down a lot more (between 2 plates) than I would have been able to without freezing first. Also, another simple recipe similar to this is using extra virgin olive oil instead of coconut oil to make it taste like 'fried chicken'. :)

  2. Thanks Johanna! I've heard of that method but haven't tried it yet with the boys. They actually prefer to eat tofu pressed and raw! Crazy!
