Tofu sticks with Parmigiano sauce

Tofu sticks with Parmigiano sauce are a delicious, healthy treat.

Thanks to this simple dish, some of my friends have changed their minds on the pleasantness of tofu. Tofu has a neutral flavor which according to some, is its weak point. On the contrary, I think it’s its strong point because it allows you to experiment with various seasonings.

Tofu sticks with Parmigiano sauce, become a crisp and tasty idea that will appeal to children, too.
