Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free


¼ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
¼ cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons cornstarch
¼ teaspoon salt
or to taste
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground, or to taste
14 ounces tofu
1 package, extra-firm, drained, rinsed and cut crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices
4 tablespoons canola oil
2 large shallots
1 teaspoon thyme
10 ounces mushrooms
sliced, cremini or white, about 6 cups
½ cup marsala wine
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon tomato paste


Preheat oven to 300℉ (150℃) F.

Whisk flour, ¼ cup cornstarch, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.

Pat tofu with paper towel to remove excess moisture.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.

Coat 4 tofu slices in the flour mixture, add them to the pan and cook until crispy and golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Place the tofu on a baking sheet or foil paper and transfer to the oven to keep warm.

Repeat with another tablespoon of oil and the remaining tofu, adjusting the heat if necessary to prevent scorching.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, shallots and thyme to the pan.

Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the shallots start to become soft and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes.

Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until tender and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Stir in Marsala and simmer until slightly reduced, 1 to 2 minute.

Whisk the remaining 2 teaspoons cornstarch with vegetable broth and tomato paste in a small bowl.

Stir into the mushroom mixture, return to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until thick and glossy, about 4 minutes.

Spoon the hot sauce over the tofu.


Serve warm.
