#118 The Case of Coconut Tofu

1 egg
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1-1/2 lbs firm tofu (slice horizontally through the thickness of the tofu)
2 tablespoons olive oil

Beat the egg in a shallow bowl.

Mix together the breadcrumbs and coconut in another shallow bowl.

Dip the tofu in the beaten egg to coat, then in the breadcrumb mixture. Pat on more breading as needed.

Fry in the olive oil in a non-stick pan until hot and golden brown on both sides.

Serves 4.



  1. What a great idea! Looks like something the whole family would like, even the little ones:)

    1. Thank you, Sara. Let me know if your children do enjoy Coconut-fried Tofu! That would be a real coup, wouldn't it? I'm also curious if you're still writing mystery. A sequel perhaps?

    2. I am still writing mystery, second one almost finished. Loved your Hide and seek mystery!

    3. Thanks! You know what it's like to be a writer, always that little bit uncertain, wondering about the response.

      Now the big question: do you have a working title for your new mystery?

    4. What happened in Tulisaari?

      It is set in a small village in Finland.

    5. Excellent title! The setting also sounds appealing!
