With Easter quickly approaching, I have been trying to decide what to make for our family meal. Before we became vegetarians, we used to have a late lunch, around 2pm, and would have all the typical foods. A turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, salad, and other various things would dress our table. The last couple years I have been at a loss on what to make; Everyone wants something delicious, filling, and ‘special.’ That’s when I heard about Kraft Fresh Takes, and how they could make a plainer dish into something amazing.
After looking through the different types; Italian Parmesan, Cheddar Jack w/ Bacon, or Southwest 3-Cheese, I decided on the Italian Parmesan. While these blends are typically to go along with meat, I decided that I could use it with tofu and it would be equally easy.I had a great idea for an Easter meal, Baked Tofu Parmesan! At only $1.98 per package (great deal, it even includes cheese!), I decided to get 2 based on the size of the recipe I was creating.
While at the store I didn’t realize right away that this breadcrumb blend also came with cheese. I’m not talking a little tiny bit of cheese either, it was a large quality, perfect for cooking. At $1.98 per package, this Fresh Take.
Okay, so now for the recipe. It was relatively easy making the Baked Tofu Parmesan. Even as a vegetarian, I was skeptical on how it would turn out, but it was SO good. I had never tried freezing tofu before cooking it, but this made a HUGE difference. The Kraft Fresh Take product coated the tofu perfectly and really gave an exceptional flavor.
You can see how perfect the tofu strips look coated in the Fresh Take seasoning and cheese. Also, one big tip I learned recently for cooking anything breaded, is to put it on a wire rack in the oven. It makes a HUGE difference. Instead of the breading getting soggy and falling off on the bottom, it stays on and gets nice and crispy. Any juices fall into the pan underneath the rack, and the food doesn’t just sit in them getting soggy. Genius!
I swear this recipe would delight vegetarians and meat eaters a like. It was seriously so tasty. We ate it all up for dinner, and both my husband and I cannot wait to make this winning recipe for Easter!
