Vegan & Gluten Free “Cheesy” Tofu Cutlets with vegan spicy mayo dipping sauce

November 2, 2020

For today’s recipe, I want to share a dish that has become a staple in my diet. I eat it no less than twice a week because of how easy it is to make and how healthy it is! This dish is a take on the famous chicken cutlet recipe but obviously as vegans we can’t eat chicken so I wanted to make a comparable meal :). And, this one hits it right on the nose!

The outside has the perfect crispy texture made by combining gluten-free bread crumbs, Nutritional yeast (to give a cheesy flavor), and Italian seasoning. So So delicious!!! For the dip I combine 1 part vegenaise (vegan mayo) with 1 part mustard (spicy or mild, your preference).

These vegan tofu cutlets are so easy to make for any season and any occasion. Trust me what I say, you will definitely be eating these more then once a week. 🙂 Who knew HEALTHY could taste sooo good!
