Ingredients

  • 1 16-oz. pkg. firm or extra-firm tofu, well drained
  • 1 large egg white
  • 3 Tbs. wheat germ
  • 2 Tbs. yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 jar Marinara or barbecue sauce, warmed, or ketchup

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil nonstick baking sheet.

Cut tofu into1/2-inch-thick slices. Blot well between kitchen towels or several layers of paper towels, then cut into 1/2-inch cubes. In shallow bowl, beat egg white with a fork. Add tofu cubes; stir gently to coat.

In small bowl, mix together wheat germ, cornmeal and seasoned salt until well combined. Add tofu in small batches and toss until evenly coated.

Transfer tofu to prepared baking sheet, spacing well apart. Bake until golden and firm, 15 to 20 minutes, turning with spatula every 5 minutes. Serve hot with sauce for dipping or topping.
