Tofu Parmesan is an easy, tasty, vegetarian dish. I love this gluten free version with marinara sauce and rice stick noodles.
How do you feed a gluten free vegetarian? I’m not really sure. Since going gluten free, my diet has been mostly plant and animal based. Not a whole lot of legumes. Never tofu. So when my oldest daughter became a vegetarian, I was pretty sure she was going to starve. Thankfully, she’s very creative, and came up with (among other things) this beautiful Tofu Parmesan recipe to go alongside our Chicken Parmesan. It’s actually really good! Like, good enough to eat because you want to, and not just because you have to. Tofu is easy to cook. You do need to press it ahead of time to get the water out, and I’d advise that you buy an actual tofu press and follow the directions on it. I personally just squash it for a couple of hours under a cutting board loaded down with pots and cans, but that’s a bit of a messy hassle. After it’s drained, though, it’s super easy to cook with. You really just need to heat it through. For the Tofu Parmesan, it’s going to cook faster and crisp up on the bottom, so flip it over after about 15 minutes so the top will get crispy as well.
I'm so glad you dropped by!
