Lemon Tofu with Capers

What you need: 

1 lb. tofu, cut into 1/4 slices
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 tblspn whole wheat flour
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tblspn vinegar
1/2 green pepper
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 tblsp soy sauce

What you do: 

Fry tofu on both sides with some oil for about 4 minutes each side, add scallions and cook for 1 more minute. Add nutritional yeast and flour, making sure to coat everything. If its not sticking to the tofu, add a little bit of water. Cook for another 2 minutes, then add lemon juice, soy sauce, and vinegar. Cook till all liquid is soaked up. Add capers and peppers, and cook for about 1 minute more, so that the peppers are hot, but still crunchy. Serve with rice.
note: this is pretty sour, so if you're not into that, cut down on the lemon juice and capers.

I made this last night and it was delicious!!  I didn't have any scallions, so i used a yellow onion.  I also added the green pepper early because I prefer it soft rather than crunchy.  I will def make this again!  Thanks for a great recipe!! :D
