Preheat oven to 425ºF. Cut the tofu into sticks and put between paper towels. Place some weights over the tofu, let drain for about 15 min.
Put the cornstarch in one bowl, the plant milk in a second bowl, and mix together panko, oil, paprika, salt, pepper and dried basil in a third bowl. Pour the crumb mixture onto a plate. Dip the tofu sticks first in cornstarch then in milk and then roll in crumb mix and place on lined baking sheet.
