Breaded Fried Tofu – Tofu Schnitzel (Parve)
- 2 (8-ounce) pieces tofu
- 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs

- Salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Parsley, to taste

Gather the ingredients.
Drain tofu cakes by wrapping in paper towels and placing under a cutting board. Weigh down cutting board by placing some canned goods on top. Let stand for 10 minutes. Unwrap the tofu cakes. Slice each cake into six pieces—each approximately 1/4-inch (1-centimeter) thick.
In a shallow bowl, mix breadcrumbs with spices.
In another shallow bowl, beat eggs.
In a third shallow bowl, place flour.
Dip tofu slice into flour and shake off excess. Then dip it into egg and shake off excess. Then dip it into breadcrumbs so it is evenly coated on both sides.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
Fry breaded tofu in hot oil on both sides. Fry for 2 or 3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
