Bocconcini di Tofu con le Mandorle, Grilled Romaine Salad with Figs, Steamed Broccoli

Dinner 9/09

Bocconcini di Tofu con le Mandorle
(Tofu with Almonds, adapted from Nick Stellino)

Grilled Romaine Salad with Figs

Steamed Broccoli

Pulled this recipe out and made it again after a long absence. It's basically breadcrumb-coated tofu (dusted in seasoned flour, dipped in a cornstarch slurry, rolled in breadcrumbs and nutritional yeast) that is pan-fried, then finished in the oven to cook the inside of the tofu.

The sauce is tomato and sun-dried tomato based, finished with slivered almonds that have had brown sugar caramelized on top. It's a very different combo, and highly effective.
