Chik'n Fried Tofu; Sautéed Spinach and Onions
This was an awesome experiment in my ongoing search for the perfect coating for fried/pan-fried/baked tofu. This stuff was really good. The coating came from McCormick Season 'n Fry Seasoned Coating Mix.
One tub (16 oz) of tofu, pressed/drained and cubed. Coat each piece with the seasoning. An easy way to do this is placing the seasoning in a plastic zip-top bag and shake like crazy! I then pan-fried the tofu in some vegetable oil until golden brown, drained the tofu, and re-coated and did the whole process over one more time. It actually stuck to the tofu, but left quite a bit of leftover flour/seasoning in the bottom of the pan. Very tasty, though.
I also enjoyed a bowl of sautéed spinach and onions with garlic on the side:
