Baked Tofu Fries

Serves 4

3-4 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons dijon mustard

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

1 slice whole grain bread

1 tablespoon vegan parmesan cheese (my favorite is Parmela Brand Parmesan Nut Cheese)

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Large pinch sea salt

1 block (16 ounces) extra firm organic tofu

Directions:

Prepare the tofu by pressing gently to remove excess liquid then cut with a knife into thin shoestring fry size pieces (the thinner the tofu, the crispier the fry). Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

On a plate or in a large, shallow bowl, combine the oil and both mustards. Then, in a food processor pulse together the sunflower seeds, bread, parmesan, and se salt until coarse and somewhat resembling bread crumbs. Empty out onto a plate or large, shallow bowl.

To make the tofu fries first dredge the tofu slice in the oil mixture, dredge and cover completely with the bread mixture, and then place on a nonstick cookie sheet. Continue until all the tofu is gone. Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on thickness, until golden brown and crisp. Enjoy plain or with some organic ketchup (:
