The soy sauce marinade makes this Crispy Breaded Tofu recipe extra tasty.
Instead of tofu you can also use tempeh. The tempeh will also need to be marinated. Seitan can also be used, but, in my opinion, will not need to be marinated.
As for the sauce, it's just yummy! A little bit of sauce gives this crispy tofu the final touch that everyone will enjoy.

- ¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 450 g package tofu, extra-firm, cut in eight slices
- 2 flax eggs 2 tsp ground flax seeds with 5 tbsp water, mix, let sit for 15 minutes
- ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup flour

- Pour the soy sauce into a deep dish. Add the tofu slices and turn them over to moisten with soy sauce. Marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes to 6 hours.
- Prepare three plates. In the first pour the flour, in the second the flax eggs, and in the third the panko breadcrumbs. Dip the tofu slices in the flour, then in the flax eggs, and finally coat them with the breadcrumb mixture.
- In a skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Bake tofu slices for 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden brown.
