Tofu Cutlets & Cutlet Sandwiches


1 package Morinaga Silken Tofu – Extra Firm


Slice tofu lengthwise into 3 or 4 slices, at least 1/4 inch thick each. Cover tofu with plastic wrap. For convenience, slice and layer several blocks on a baking tray, covering each layer with plastic wrap. Cover and freeze overnight.

There are a number of ways to thaw the frozen tofu cutlets. Remove from freezer and place in refrigerator overnight and they will be ready to marinate by morning. Otherwise, place the tofu on a microwaveable tray and defrost for 1-2 minutes.

Depending on the sauce used (see below), marinate defrosted Mori-Nu Tofu cutlets for anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Afterwards they are ready to bake, broil, barbecue, or even fry i a pan sprayed lightly with oil.
