    If I owned a restaurant this Tofu Sandwich would be a best seller for sure!  If you grill the bread first it is even more savory and delicious!

    Tofu sandwich

    I used to be a bit afraid of tofu like many other people are.  One of my first vegetarian sandwiches was a tofu burger.  It was flattened ball of goo cooked on the outside and a bit mushy and gross on the inside.  I was officially not a tofu fan until I made my first batch of soy sauce fried tofu.  I diced tofu up into small squares, fried them in oil and then tossed them in soy sauce, OMG, so good!  For a long time that was the ONLY way I would eat tofu.  It took me a long while before I learned how to cook tofu.  If you feel the same, give these a chance, you won’t be disappointed.

    I stopped using oil to fry in and now I use cooking spray to lightly mist the pan.  Of course this is not 100% oil free but it is the best I can do on my stainless steel pans.  If you have non-stick pans you can usually go completely oil free.

    Tofu Sandwich

    Serves: 4

    1 package extra firm pre-baked tofu (or regular extra firm)
    1 tub of sliced mushrooms
    Soy sauce
    Garlic powder
    Onion powder
    Sliced onions
    Sliced tomatoes
    Sliced avocado
    Bread & butter pickles (not dill!)
    Pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)
    Lettuce or spinach
    Veganise (or vegan mayo substitute)
    Salt & Pepper

    Drain the liquid from the tofu and press out excess liquid in a paper towel. Thinly slice the tofu to approximately 1/4 inch thick. Lightly spray a frying pan with cooking spray or use a nonstick pan. Cook tofu slices on medium heat until browned on each side and the liquid is cooked out.

    While the tofu cooks, slice the mushrooms very thin. Once the tofu is browned add a few splashes of soy sauce and quickly flip the tofu to evenly coat.  Just before the soy sauce dries sprinkle a small amount of garlic powder onto the top of the tofu. Remove tofu slices from the pan and set aside. Keep the heat on medium and do NOT rinse the dried soy sauce from the pan.

    Once the tofu is removed from the pan, add the sliced mushrooms.   When the mushrooms start to stick to the bottom of the pan add enough water to loosen and flip the mushrooms. Continue cooking until they start to dry out. Add water again or a little more soy sauce and cook until they dry out again. Remove the pan from the heat.

    Slice the onions, tomatoes, and avocados. Toast the bread if desired and assemble the tofu sandwich to desired taste. ENJOY!
