Vegan & Gluten Free β€œCheesy” Tofu Cutlets with vegan spicy mayo dipping sauce

For the past few months I have been sticking strongly to a meatless diet! From July up till now (November) I have been eating this way and am so proud of myself. I will be dedicating a full post on my blog when the 6 month mark comes up in December. πŸ™‚

For today’s recipe, I want to share one that has become a staple in my new diet. I eat it no less than twice a week because of how easy it is to make and how healthy it is! This dish is a take on the famous chicken cutlet recipe but obviously as vegans we can’t eat chicken so I wanted to make a comparable meal :). And, this one hits it right on the beak (wink*). πŸ™‚

With the Holidays quickly approaching and the cold weather here (at least where I live) you’re going to want to start incorporating more warm meals in your diet and this is perfect for it.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Slice tofu into 1/2 inch slices (width wise), lay on a sheet and put a heavy plate on top of them for 10 minutes – drains the excess water
  3. In a bowl combine nutritional yeast, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning and chili powder. In a separate bowl add some olive oil (used for dipping).
  4. Lay tofu cutlets into the oil, coating each side then dip into breadcrumb mixture (making sure to coat all sides).
  5. Add to a greased baking sheet and bake 10 minutes each side or until the inside is cooked to your liking (12 minutes for a crispier texture).
  6. While cutlets are cooking, in a dipping dish combine mayo and mustard
  7. Once cutlets are cooked, serve and eat! Enjoy πŸ™‚
