3 Tbsp milk of choice*

1/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp dried basil

Press block of tofu for about 15 minutes to remove moisture (wrap in paper towels, place heavy item such as cast-iron skillet on top.) While tofu is pressing, add egg and milk together (or just oil if vegan) into small bowl and whisk together. In a separate larger bowl, make in the breading mixture - add the breadcrumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder, salt and optional parmesan.

2. Cut tofu into squares or triangles and dip into milk and egg mixture to coat. Cut into squares then dip in mix of 1 egg 3 Tbsp milk. Then coat by lightly pressing each side into breading mixture.

3. Warm a skillet on medium-high heat with oil and once warmed, add the tofu. Cook until golden brown (about 4 minutes) and then flip and continue cooking until golden brown on each side.

4. Remove from skillet and top with a spoonful of warm marinara, optional shredded parmesan or mozzarella, fresh herbs, and a side of steamed vegetables or a salad and pasta! Enjoy!
