Tofu Sticks

Bella loves to dip things…so this week we made “Tofu Sticks” from Simply Natural Baby Food by Cathe Olson. They are deliciously crispy AND tasty.

1 lb. extra firm tofu
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs (whole wheat) or cracker crumbs
3 T sesame seeds (optional)
1 T nutritional yeast
1/4 t paprika
1/2 t kelp powder
3 T olive oil

Press the water out of the tofu using a towel. If you use the tofu packed in water, you may want to rest something heavy on it for 10-15 minutes to get the water out. In a pie plate or shallow bowl, combine crumbs, seeds, nutritional yeast, paprika, and kelp. Cut the tofu block in 1/2 lengthwise. Turn tofu back to the widest side, and cut tofu into 1/2 inch slices across the shorter end. You should have 12 pieces.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss tofu sticks with olive oil…coating all sides. Next, carefully roll the sticks in the breading mixture until coated.

Place them on a baking sheet (stoneware works best). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brown and crisp. You may have to turn them once.

For the sauce, I use vegenaise with a little dill pickle juice and lemon juice added. Yum! These were a big hit.

    I froze some organic tofu and took it out of the freezer early last week…it’s been thawed in the fridge for about five days now. Think it’s still good? I’m so bad about buying tofu and then not using it. 😦

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
