Make fishy-flavored vegetarian "fish sticks" using tofu and seaweed flakes. These easy baked or fried vegan tofu mock-fish sticks are low in fat if you bake them, and will be a hit with the kids. Serve with a vegan tartar sauce, ketchup, or even ranch dressing or barbecue sauce.


  • 2 blocks tofu (firm or extra firm, pressed)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. nori seaweed (crumbled)
  • 1 tsp. lemon pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F.

  2. Slice tofu into strips and coat well with flour.

  3. In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk together the soy milk, soy sauce, and lemon juice. In a separate bowl or pie plate, combine bread crumbs, nori and lemon pepper.

  4. Carefully dip floured tofu in soy milk mixture, then coat well in bread crumbs.

  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, turning over once, until crispy and golden brown. Or, pan-fry on both sides in a bit of oil.
