Recipe Ingredients for Mustard Crusted Tofu with Balsamic Strawberries

14 ounce extra firm tofu
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons strawberries, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon panko bread crumbs*
2 tablespoons cashews, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup strawberries, chopped
2 teaspoons honey
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Mustard Crusted Tofu with Balsamic Strawberries

  1. To make the mustard encrusted tofu:

  2. Wrap the block of tofu in a clean towel, place the tofu in a colander and place the colander in the sink. Place a plate, heavy can or other weight over the towel-covered tofu and leave the weight to press the tofu for 30 minutes.

  3. Remove the tofu from the towel. Cut the tofu crosswise into 4 slices and then cut each slice diagonally so you have 8 triangles. Set aside.

  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  5. Place the Dijon mustard, strawberries and honey into a food processor. Process until smooth. Pour the Dijon strawberry honey mixture into a shallow plate or baking dish.

  6. Place the bread crumbs, cashews, salt and pepper together on a separate plate.

  7. Dip each pressed tofu slice into the mustard mixture, coating well on both sides. Then place the tofu in the bread crumbs, taking care to make sure the tofu is well coated. Place on the baking sheet.

  8. Bake for 10 minutes per side, or until the tofu is crispy and golden on both sides.

  9. To make the balsamic strawberries:

  10. Place the strawberries, honey, cashews and balsamic vinegar together in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the strawberries are soft.

  11. To complete the Mustard Encrusted Tofu with Strawberries:

  12. Divide the tofu on 4 plates, top with the balsamic strawberries and enjoy.
