Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 Tbs. pickle relish or to taste
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard or to taste
  • 1 Tbs. natural soy mayonnaise or reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 lb. firm or extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • 1 tsp. salt-free herb-and-spice seasoning mix
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Tartar Sauce
  • 3/4 cup plain low-fat soy yogurt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut tofu into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Blot well between several layers of paper towel, then cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  2. In shallow bowl, mix wheat germ, seasoning mix and salt. Add tofu sticks and coat with mixture. Arrange breaded tofu on a lightly oiled nonstick baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the cutlets are golden and firm.
