Give your tofu an easy and flavorful crust for an utterly satisfying vegetarian dinner.

The universally appealing cuisine at NYC restaurant Jack’s Wife Freda is inspired by the global Jewish comfort foods that fueled the childhoods of owners Dean and Maya Jankelowitz. Tuck into matzo ball soup, all manners of hearty egg dishes, lots of lamb, fresh vegetables and even tagine with couscous. This mustard seed-crusted tofu is a flavor-packed vegetarian delight.

This is an excellent recipe for vegetarians and carnivores alike. The mustard seed crust provides a crunchy texture to the outside of the soft tofu and the spaghetti squash offers a starchy base to this dish.
