"Shook 'n' Cook" Fried Cajun-ish Tofu

I'm not a huge fan of tofu unless it's unrecognizable, but this recipe made me change my mind. It's from Sarah Kramer's book, La Dolce Vegan.

Shook 'n' Cook Breading
1 cup cornflake-type cereal
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp Cajun spice

In a food processor, blend all ingredients until coarse. Store in airtight container. Makes approx. 1 1/2 cups.

Shook 'n' cook Tofu
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1 tsp Cajun Spice
1/2 cup Shook 'n' Cook breading
1/2 lb firm tofu

In a shallow dish, stir together the BBQ sauce and Cajun spice. Set aside. In a medium bag, portion out 1/2 cup of breading mixture. Slice tofu into bite-sized wedges. Dip each tofu slice in sauce and then place in bag with breading mixture. Shake until well coated. In a medium saucepan on medium heat, saute the tofu in oil until browned. Makes 6-8 tofu slices.


I dipped it in the same barbeque sauce. It was great and filling
