“These medallions are easy to make and are great veggie or vegan substitutes in traditional Parmesan or Marsala recipes. They also make a great sandwich patty, smothered in BBQ, sweet and sour or Buffalo sauce. I love them because they're so versatile! Play with the seasonings, if you like....try cajun seasoning or lemon pepper to go with your own recipes!”

Directions

  1. Drain tofu and place it on an inverted dinner plate in the sink, top with another plate and some heavy books. Allow to press for 15 minutes or so.
  2. Meanwhile, add flour, salt, garlic and seasoning to a shallow bowl and mix. Set aside.
  3. When tofu is pressed, slice it into 8 even pieces and dredge, one slice at a time, in the flour mixture.
  4. Heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a shallow pan and add half the tofu slices. Fry until crisp, turning once they have browned on one side.
  5. Remove first batch to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat frying method for the second batch, using the additional tbs of olive oil if necessary.
  6. Smother the medallions in marinara sauce and (soy) parmesan cheese and serve over pasta. Or scrape up the left over pan drippings, saute some mushrooms, add remaining flour mixture and whisk in some dry marsala wine for a simple marsala sauce.
