lemon "chicken"!

hey guys, this is my first post and stuff, soooo.... here's what I had for lunch today!

I got the recipe from a website I can't find anymore, but I modified it a lot.. anyway, it was suuuper tasty. Pretty basic as tofu recipes go, I know, but it's the best/easiest skillet-soy I've managed to come up with and it looks so pretty on a plate!


olive oil
1/2 pound of firm tofu
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp nutritional yeast (I didn't have any and it turned out great anyway)
1 tsp tasty vinegar (plum, brown rice, white wine, etc)
1 1/2 tbsp tamari
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (or more. I like more! ^_^)


1. Cut the tofu into 1/4" slices, then into 1" squares. Lightly dust the pieces with flour (and yeast, if you've got it).
2. Saute the onions in a large skillet (cast-iron is good) for a minute or so, medium heat. Then add the garlic and the tofu pieces, and cook tofu until it's lightly crispy on both sides (about 2 minutes per side).
3. Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce and spices, then toss it over the tofu and coat everything. Once it's absorbed, add the lemon juice, saute another 2 minutes, and serve!
