|Breaded tofu drenched in sauce and topped with melted (vegan) cheese makes a rich and hearty dish.|
Whisk together flaxseeds and 6 T water in a shallow bowl. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl with yeast and spices.
Stir 2 T milk and the yogurt into the flax mixture.
Line up breading components along the counter in this order:
Preheat oven to 350.
Dab a slice of tofu with water all over and dredge it in the flour. Place in flax and flip to coat, then dip it in the crumbs, lightly pressing for an even coating. Place in baking dish, and repeat with remaining tofu.
Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and crisp.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 T milk with mozzarella over medium-low heat. Mash the cheese a bit, then simmer, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth.
Remove the tofu from the oven and increase heat to 400. Carefully transfer tofu to a plate.
Spread about ½ c sauce in the baking dish, place the tofu in a single layer, and top with the rest of the sauce, spreading gently to completely coat each piece.
Pour the mozzarella sauce over the top and top with any remaining crumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes and serve hot.
|Notes||If you like, you can increase the sauce and serve with some plain pasta on the side.|
