Ingredients for Crispy Panko-Crusted Tofu Steak

  • Firm Tofu– Pat dry the surface of tofu with paper towels. I wouldn’t press the tofu as you still want the moisture from the tofu.
  • Panko Breadcrumbs– Panko Bread Crumbs are a key ingredient. Genuine panko breadcrumbs are made from a particular kind of crustless bread. Panko is lighter, it absorbs less oil and grease making breaded fried foods less heavy. They are never made from whole wheat bread. The word panko comes from Japanese, and panko is used a lot for light breading in Japanese cuisine. If you’re gluten-free, you can simply use rice breadcrumbs.
  • Organic All-Purpose flour– This is for PANE. ( Pané ( French culinary term (pane) is a cooking method which means dipped or rolled in breadcrumbs before cooking.) For gluten-free substitutions, chickpea flour, gluten-free all-purpose flour, rice flour or cornflour both work out pretty well.
  • Vegan Mayonnaise and Water– Mix vegan mayonnaise and water for egg wash substitutions.
  • Spices- Cracked black pepper, Paprika( sweet or smoked it’s up to you. ) Onion powder, Garlic powder, Salt

How to make Crispy Panko-Crusted Tofu Steak

  4. Dip tofu slices into flour( lightly- dusted), the vegan mayo mixture, and roll in breadcrumbs.
  5. For the extra-crispy result, you can double-crumb the tofu by repeating step 4.
  6. Heat up cooking oil to medium-high heat (around 160–170°C) in the frying pan, then shallow fry the tofu until golden brown on both sides. Take out and place them onto paper towels, then serve.
