Crispy Tofu and Birthday Cake

The Chef: Chas 

The Menu: A splendid spread complete with crispy breaded tofu and seasoned brown rice made up the bulk of this hearty, rainy day lunch. Chas balanced out the meal with a bounty of greens: steamed kale and a salad overflowing with cabbage, broccoli, shredded carrot, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, and mixed greens topped with a delicious avocado, lemon, and tofu salad dressing, to be exact. 

The Goods: We're officially adding crispy, crunchy, perfectly breaded tofu and tangy, zesty avocado dressing to the ever-growing list of Chas' lunchtime specialties. We followed this tasty feast with a strawberries-and-cream cake—vegan, of course—to celebrate Lyndsay and Laura's recent birthdays. Colleen whipped up this decadent, rich delight from scratch, and expertly topped it with fresh strawberries covered in chocolate and sprinkled with sugar. Were we complaining about it? No. Were there leftovers? Are you new here? Happy Birthday, Lyndsay and Laura!

I've YET to make a tofu recipe that is truly crispy. I've tried cornmeal, rice flour, white flour, wwflour, my uncle Louie's flour etc. Not ONCE has a recipe come through. And yes, I've tried different oils from peanut to safflower to canola...

I also would love recipes for these scrumptious-looking dishes! My son (a 2008 Cutest Vegetarian Ever finalist, mind you) will be graduating from high school in a couple of weeks and this might be just the ticket for his party meal!
