Tofu Parmigiana

  • 1/2 C seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 C and 1 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (12oz.) package firm tofu
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 (8oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese


In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon oregano, salt and pepper.

Slice tofu into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place in bowl of cold water. One at a time, press tofu slices into crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides.

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook tofu slices until crisp on one side. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil, turn, and brown on the other side.

Combine tomato sauce, basil, garlic and remaining oregano. Place a thin layer of sauce in an 8-inch square baking pan. Arrange tofu slices in the pan. Spoon remaining sauce over tofu. Top with shredded mozzarella and remaining 3 tablespoons Parmesan.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
