*Now you have 2 choices to cook your tofu baking or Pan Frying.

🥘 Baking

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Spread about 2 tbsp of oil on the bottom of a cookie sheet.
  3. Place the breaded tofu on the cookie sheet and bake at 400°F for about 20 minutes.
  4. After 20 minutes, take out of the oven and flip with a spatula.
  5. Bake for an additional 20 minutes on the other side.

🍳 Pan-frying

  1. Place 2 tbsp of oil in the bottom of a skillet. (I highly recommend using an iron skillet for tofu. It always cooks perfectly and never sticks to my iron skillet).
  2. Place the coated tofu in the frying pan and turn heat to medium-high.
  3. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and crunchy.

🍞 How to make it gluten-free

If you need this to be gluten-free, simply use gluten-free panko, cracker, corn chips, or cornmeal instead of the bread crumbs made from wheat. Also, make sure to use a gluten-free flour mix.
