Pan Fried Tofu

What you need: 

1 pkg. regular extra firm tofu, drained and cut in 1/4 to 1/2 slices
approx. 1/2 to 1 cup soy sauce or tamari
approx. 1/2 cup water
approx. 1 to 1 1/2 cup wheat germ
approx. 1 cup engevita yeast
olive oil

What you do: 

Marinate tofu slices in soy sauce for a minimum of 20 min or up to several hours. Mix together yeast and wheat germ in dish (should be about 2/3 wheat germ to 1/3 yeast, no need to measure).
Heat oil in large fry pan. Dredge tofu slices in wheat germ/yeast and place in pan. Fry until brown then flip and brown the other side, adding more oil if necessary so they don't dry out.
Serve with chutney or your favorite dipping sauce. Great as a side dish to any veggie meal especially with rice or potatoes. This recipe is easy-going, just wing it! Variations: add minced garlic or rosemary or your favorite herb to tofu while marinating. Cold leftovers are good in your lunch.
