Step 1:

Slice the tofu into thick strips and place on paper towel. Add some more paper towel to the top and pile something heavy on, like cans, to press the water out of the tofu. Let sit about 1 hour, changing the paper towels half way through


Step 2:

After tofu has been pressed pour some milk in a shallow dish and some bread crumbs in another. I added the salt and garlic powder to the milk to season the tofu and make life easier


Step 3:

Cut the tofu strips into cubes and dunk each cube in the milk and then coat with the bread crumbs. Thread each cube onto a wooden or metal stick and set aside.


Step 4:

Saute the tofu sticks until browned. Combine the broth and potato soup and pour over the tofu. Bring to boil and then let simmer for about 20 minutes. Make sure to flip the tofu sticks at least once so they don't burn on one side.


Step 5:

Serve over mashed potatoes, on a baked potato, over brown rice, or even egg noodles, Enjoy!

Big Dave from SLN says:
Tofu is supposed to be pressed before using it? How come you vegetarians don't explain these things to us carnivores before we attempt to cook tofu?!

Goldilocks says:
Yeah, this was actually my first attempt at using tofu. I had to do a ton of research before I trusted myself with the stuff and I was terrified that it would come out bad. Happily it didn't! : )
