Me and the fam came back into the city early today so the hub could go and watch the Duke game with his pal. While the boys were out, LM and I got serious in the kitchen. Starting with some kale chips. A friend of mine told me she made these and they were great. So I wanted to give them a try. I looked online for the first good sounding recipe and came across this from Smitten Kitchen: Baked Kale Chips.
Took one package firm tofu and sliced about a finger size thick. Dredged in egg wash (with some garlic powder) and then dipped in whole wheat bread crumbs (with some montreal steak spice and paprika sprinkled in). I FORGOT to add (and for sure will next time) parmesan cheese into the crumbs.
Instead of baking at 350 for 20 or so minutes (till golden brown) I flat out fried these suckers. Well obviously they were amazing. They were like chicken fingers - but with tofu. Soft on the inside, crispy on the outside - delicious! In other news, LM is starting to refuse the sippy cup...and just want to dribble milk down his face...this is nice. tee hee.
