    Default Shake & Bake Tofu Fingers (Vegetarian)

    Order nail wraps from a Jamberry Independent Consultant
    Serving Size: 4

    Preparation: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    • 14-16 oz. extra firm tofu
    • 1/4 cut wheat germ
    • dashes of dried basil and oregano, to taste
    • 1/2 teasp. salt
    Steps:
    • Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch thick slices, and press between clean towels or several paper towels to remove excess moisture. Then cut into "fingers" of 1/2 inch wide strips.
    • Combine the wheat germ, herbs, and salt in a one-gallon Ziploc-style bag. Add the tofu and shake gently until they are evenly coated.
    • Arrange the tofu fingers on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake until golden and firm, about 15 minutes.
    • Serve while hot, with a side cup of marinara sauce (or ketchup) for dipping.

    Thanks for the recipe! This was only our second time ever having tofu (first was a couple of weeks ago), and we practically inhaled these last night. I did modify the seasoning some. I used Italian seasoning instead of the herbs (it has those herbs plus more, of course), some garlic powder, some onion powder, the wheat germ, and the salt. It was so yummy! I think I liked them more than regular chicken fingers. We will definitely be making them again.

    so, does tofu taste like meat? I've never had it.

    I've never had it either. My question is... what is the texture like?

    Tastes like chicken.

    It's really very bland, to my taste. I think it tastes mostly like whatever it's cooked with. It doesn't have the fat or texture of meat at all, so personally I don't think of it as "meaty," even when it's prepared in a way similar to meat.

    But, it's less than $2/pound, and it's carried everywhere, so why not try it? Or, do you have a favorite Chinese or Thai restaurant? I'm sure they'd have a dish with tofu on the menu -- even Panda Express does.

    texture -- depends on the kind of tofu. Silken tofu is, well, silken. Very smooth, like a hard-boiled egg white, only not quite as firm. "Regular" tofu has a bit more a grain or crumble to it, but a lot depends on how it's cooked.
