Eat Skinny: Spicy Tofu Parmesan [& Some Exciting News!]

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi guys! Got a short and sweet little tofu Parmesan recipe for y’all today since I’ve got quite a full agenda (shocking news there, right?) How was your weekend? Mine was good, a little busy. Had to finish up some work yesterday. But I mean, I can’t complain. This is what my job was for yesterday.

Turned a boring circle mirror and some plastic spoons into a statement mirror! It was a pain in the ass to make, but I’m really happy with the turnout! Now, before we hop on over to the delicious recipe, I have one more teensy little thing to share.

That’s right! I’m on the agenda for this years HLS! If you can remember, last year was my first time at the conference (recap 1 here and 2 here) and it was honestly such an incredible weekend! I mean, how can you not have fun with people who love the same things you do? Well this year, they have asked me to help moderate the ice breaker session! I’m pumped. As a newbie last year, it was terribly overwhelming so I’m going to do all I can to help make everyone feel great, comfortable and amazing. I mean, we all are those things anyway, right?

Okay, enough blab blab from me, let’s talk tofu. Because guys, tofu is the bees knees, the apple of my eye, the sweet to my strawberry. Okay. I’m done. But really, I like it. And I like it even more when it’s crusted with deliciousness and served over pasta.

It’s my own healthy take on chicken parmigiana. And really, what doesn’t taste good crusted in deliciousness and served over pasta?

Instead of pan frying it in oil, loading it up with cheese and serving it on a platter of sauce, I decided to opt for a healthier way of preparation. Bake the tofu, bread it with parmesan and serve it over pasta with some no-sodium added Muir Glen tomatoes. Each bite is crispy, spicy and succulent, without all the added fat.

Cuz I mean it’s bathing suit season after all, isn’t it hard enough squeezing into a two piece without feeling bloated and gross after eating a fatty meal?

    This is a fantastic recipe, I am so happy to see others in love with tofu.  It is such a vesatile meat sub and takes on the flavors you cook it with.  Wonderful.
