Ingredients
  

  • 1 package extra firm tofu drained and crumbled, 14-ounce
  • 1 Pkg Tofu Noodles
  • 4 tablespoons MCT Oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms about 4 ounces
  • 3/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup Carbquick
  • 1 Can Red Gold Tomato Sauce
  • Pinch sea salt plus 1/2and more to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/4 cup FC bread crumbs Dry out 3 FC bread slices and make into crumbs in food processor
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Raise the heat to high and cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms have given off their juices and are lightly caramelized, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the vegetables to the work bowl of a food processor. Add the tofu, egg and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pulse to combine.
  • Add the FC bread crumbs and parsley and pulse to combine again. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
  • Spread the Carbquick on a plate. Moisten your hands with water and form the tofu mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls. Lightly coat the balls in flour and put them onto a baking sheet or large plate.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Add the balls and cook them until browned all over, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Add the tomato sauce to the pan and simmer until the balls are firm and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve with tofu Noodles

Servings 3 servings
Calories 262 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Block (13.5 oz) Tofu firm or extra-firm
  • 3 TBSP Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 TBSP Carbquick Baking Mix
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 2 TBSP MCT Oil

Instructions
 

Pressing the Tofu

  • Place the Tofu on a Layer of Paper Towels. Fold a length of paper towels or a dishcloth in half or quarters to increase the absorbency. Place the folded towels on the cutting board, then place the block of tofu on the paper towels. ​ Note: If the paper towels become too wet after absorbing the initial moisture, you may want to place the tofu on a second, fresh layer of paper towels.
  • Place another layer of folded paper towels or a clean kitchen cloth top of the block of tofu. Place the bowl or another cutting board on top of the top layer of paper towels. Place the weight into the bowl or onto the cutting board. Your weight should be heavy enough to press down evenly across the top of the tofu, but not so heavy so as to cause the tofu block to crumble. A large can of food is a perfect weight. Other objects that might work include an iron frying pan, a heavy book, or a small exercise dumbbell weight.
  • Let the tofu sit for at least 30 minutes. The weight will gradually and effectively squeeze the moisture out of the block of tofu, where it will be absorbed by the paper towels. If the paper towels become fully saturated, you may need to replace them with fresh paper towels and continue pressing until the paper towels stop absorbing moisture. You can now proceed to cut the tofu block into strips or cubes for use in your recipes.

Cooking the Tofu

  • Slice the drained and pressed tofu into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the tofu with the remaining ingredients, except the oil, and toss gently to coat the tofu well. Or, place all ingredients in a zip-lock bag or covered container and shake well.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and add the tofu. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and lightly crispy.
