Make fishy-flavored vegetarian "fish sticks" using tofu and seaweed flakes. These easy baked or fried vegan tofu mock-fish sticks are low in fat if you bake them, and will be a hit with the kids. Serve with a vegan tartar sauce, ketchup, or even ranch dressing or barbecue sauce.
What You'll Need:
2 blocks firm or extra firm tofu, pressed
1/4 cup soy milk
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp crumbled nori seaweed
1 tsp lemon pepper
How to Make It:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice tofu into strips and coat well with flour.
In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk together the soy milk, soy sauce and lemon juice. In a separate bowl or pie plate, combine bread crumbs, nori and lemon pepper.
Carefully dip floured tofu in soy milk mixture, then coat well in bread crumbs.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning over once, until crispy and golden brown. Or, pan fry on both sides in a bit of oil.
Serve with a vegan tartar sauce.
