To prepare this meal, you will need extra firm tofu, cornstarch, Italian herb seasoning, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, vegetable oil, onion, olive oil, rosemary, button mushrooms, and vegetable broth.

You can swap out some of these ingredients with others. Try using seitan, cassava flour, dry oregano, dry thyme, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, red onions, shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, and mushroom broth.

Tofu is a great choice for this vegetarian meal because it is both high in protein and low in fat. This food is made from mashed soybeans, and it remains extremely versatile. Tofu is considered a complete protein because it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is also a great source of iron, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, copper, zinc, and vitamin B1.

Paired with mushrooms, you will get a ton of nutrients from this recipe. Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D, calcium, zinc, copper, potassium, and B vitamins among some. This fungus is also an alternative to other starchy foods, and it contains fiber, which can help you stay full, digest better, and lower blood cholesterol.

Before you use tofu, be sure to press it and dry it. You will be rolling the tofu on top of the crust mix, and then frying it. You can also bake it if you want to keep the dish healthy.

For the gravy, start by heating the onion in oil, and then stir in the rosemary and mushrooms. Finish with the broth and cook until it thickens.

Serve your tasty fried tofu with mushroom gravy over white rice or potatoes.
