Tofu Piccata

This tofu recipe is one that even non-vegetarians like. It is great on angel hair pasta or spaghetti squash for those carb conscious individuals.
1 large    lemon, peeled and white pith removed  
1/3 cup    all-purpose flour  
1 lb    extra firm tofu  
1 Tbs    olive oil  
1/3 cup    dry white wine  
4 oz    white button mushrooms, thinly sliced  
2 Tbs    capers, drained  
2 Tbs    fresh parsley minced  
2 Tbs    Take Control Light Margarine  

1 Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
2 Cut the lemon into very thin rounds, discarding the seeds, and set aside.
3 Drain tofu, wrap in paper towel, and press for about 10 minutes (to give your tofu a firmer texture).
4 Put flour into a shallow bowl.
5 Season the tofu with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour, tapping off any excess.
6 Transfer the tofu slices to a platter and set aside.
7 Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
8 Add the tofu, in batches, and cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides (a 2 minutes total).
9 Place the tofu slices on a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
10 Deglaze the skillet with the wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom.
11 Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring a few times, until slightly softened (about 2 minutes).
12 Stir in the lemon slices, capers, and parsley and simmer until hot.
13 Stir in the margarine to enrich the sauce.
14 Arrange the tofu on a serving platter and pour the sauce over the tofu and serve at once.
15 Serve on rice or angel hair pasta.
