Recipe Monday: Pretzel-Honey Mustard Crusted Tofu

20130318-092603.jpg

So my roommate found and made a recipe for pretzel and honey mustard chicken on Pinterest one night; it smelled and looked so good I was compelled to try it with my tofu! The results; perfection. Only 4 ingredients, about 30 minutes of time, and it’s stress relieving. This dish had the sweet, salty, and healthy factor and literally just melted in my mouth. The only drawback was that I did NOT make enough for all the people who ended up wanting the vegan dish!

Ingredients you will need:
3/4 cup of Honey mustard
2-3 cups of pretzels
1-2 blocks of extra firm tofu
1 cup of Almond Milk

Begin by mixing your honey mustard and almond milk in a bowl until even and smooth. While doing that, or after, put your pretzels into a bag and crush as best you can! Using, whatever you can, as I did. Being vegetarian I didn’t have a meat cleaver, though I suspect that would work best.

After you drain your tofu with paper towels, make sure they are sliced about 1/4″ thick, then lather in the mustard-milk mixture, press into the pretzel mixture (make sure there’s a nice, thick, and even coat on there) then sear in a dash of oil in a frying pan! Sear until golden brown on each side.

I served mine with a side of broccoli and some extra honey mustard mix glazed on top. Like, I said, this is an amazing melt in your mouth dish that vegans and meat eaters alike enjoyed. Let me know if you try this recipe, or any variation of it with meat, or seitan, or what you think would work well!
