I eat lunch at work with a group of people who all bring lunches from home on a regular basis. We almost always begin our time discussing and commenting on what everyone else has brought. Last week, two different people tried to guess what I was eating. Was it chicken? My friends knew that was unlikely. Eggplant? I wish, but not at this time of year. Nope, it was tofu. This didn’t really come as a surprise to anyone.
The conversation then transitioned to the fact that if you bread something, cover it with tomato sauce and cheese and then serve it with a side of pasta, it’s almost guaranteed to be delicious. “Anything” Parmesan is one of my favorite foods and it is so easy to make meatless versions. This Tofu Parmesan is just as good as the original, doesn’t use anything exotic (if you haven’t tried tofu yet, check my recipe index for ideas to get started!) and reheats well for several days of work lunches.
This dish is also perfect if you’re having a spring like we are: cool and rainy. I am dying to see the sun for more than a few minutes at a time, but Tofu Parmesan is the perfect comfort food to help get me through.
