Cajun Tofu

This is my favorite item on the menu at Detroit Vegan Soul so I had to try and make a version at home and I've since made this several times.  This is good with a salad or coleslaw and german potato salad.

Cajun Tofu

2/3         cup soy/nut milk
2            tablespoons lime juice
1/4         cup flour
1/3         cup cornmeal
1            tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1            teaspoon onion powder
1/2         teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/2         teaspoon salt
1/2         teaspoon black pepper
1            block firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a baking pan.

Combine soy/nut milk and lime juice in a wide shallow bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, Cajun seasoning, onion powder, cayenne, and salt and pepper.

Slice tofu into triangles or rectangular strips and dip in soy/nut milk and lime juice mixture.  Next, coat well with cornmeal and flour mixture.

Transfer to baking pan and bake for 8-10 minutes on each side.  Serve with Tartar Sauce and coleslaw or potato salad.

Tartar Sauce

1 & 1/2        cups vegan mayonnaise
1                  tablespoon onion powder
4                  tablespoons sweet pickle relish

1                  tablespoon white vinegar
