Pan Fried Tofu

Community Recipe from


  • 2 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup(s) panko crumbs, sea salt, parmesean, nutritional yeast, dill
  • 1/4 cup(s) veggie oil
  • 1 container(s) extra firm tofu, drained
  • 1 egg with soy sauce and nutritional yeast


  1. Cut the tofu into 8 long logs (I like this because you can easily grab it when you’re putting it into the fryer and take them out)
  2. Put the corn starch on a plate
  3. Put the panko crumbs on a plate
  4. Put egg mixture in bowl
  5. Heat the veggie oil until hot in a sauce pan
  6. Dip the tofu into the egg mixture, then corn starch being careful to not put too much corn starch on the tofu log
  7. Then dip the tofu into the panko crumbs
  8. Once the oil is hot, carefully put the tofu log into the hot grease and let fry on each side until brown
  9. Then remove and let drain on a paper towel
  10. I didn’t put any salt or pepper on the tofu, but you certainly could. This was so yummy and crispy. It was exactly what I wanted.
