Breaded Tofu Cutlets

From 52veggie
I was originally planning to make Oregano-Crusted Tofu from "This Can't Be Tofu," but after a review of the ingredients and methods, I decided to make a modified tofu recipe.

Breaded Tofu Cutlets
1 pkg extra-firm or firm tofu, drained
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 garlic cloves
3 tbsp pine nuts
3 tbsp vegetable oil

Cut tofu into six triangles. Drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.

Process cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor. Press tofu triangles into mixture, pressing extra on the top.

Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Fry tofu triangles until golden brown. Before flipping, press more of the breading mixture into the top.

I have to admit, I expected not to like this recipe but it really had a lot of flavor, and provides a more "meat and potatoes" experience than a lot of tofu recipes. Of course it helped that I served it with potatoes.
