Baked Tofu

This was lunch today. I'm slightly ashamed to admit that in my almost-four years of being a vegan, this is the first time I've successfully made tofu that was not in some way pureed or smashed. I think it came out pretty good. I used part of a recipe on peta2 for the liquid part and a recipe for mock Shake n Bake from allrecipes for the breadcrumb part. The potato was just mushed up with some hummus and baby spinach and salt and the baby carrots were just...carrots.

Baked Tofu
1 block firm tofu, pressed and cut into triangles

3 Tbsp. mustard
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup flour
black pepper and garlic powder to taste [I never measure this stuff]

2 cups dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons paprika
1-1/2 teaspoons celery salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon minced onion
1 pinch dried basil leaves
1 pinch dried oregano

Dilute the mustard in the water and then whisk in the flour and spices. In a ziplock bag or a bowl, combine all breading ingredients. Take your tofu triangles, dredge them in the cornstarch, then in the mustard mix, then in the breadcrumbs. Throw them on a greased baking pan and put them in the oven at about 400 degrees. Bake them until it looks like the crumbs are almost burned [I really should have timed this, but I don't know exactly how long it took.]

Super easy and good.
