Spiced Tofu Sandwich
Cheers to Friday everyone!
I am super into tofu right now. It it totally the culinary equivalent of this season’s rainbow colored jeans in my kitchen. And this sandwich is my reserved for special occasion Saturday night happy hours with the girls hot pink skinnies!
This tofu sandwich is not only packed with tons of flavor due to a delicious spice rub…
but you also get double the flavor by grilling the tofu for the sandwiches!
The rub is earthy and spicy. You toast the spices whole and grind them yourself to pull out as much flavor as you can.
Then, marinating the tofu for several hours really lets everything sink in.
This sandwich isn’t one of those “trick you into thinking it’s meat” tofu dishes – but that’s OK! It has a flavor all its own. And it’s definitely big flavor. Oh – and if you want to kick it up even another notch? Mix 1 cup of Greek Yogurt with 2 tablespoons of the marinade and use it as a spread for the bun!
Pile the tofu up high and then load it up with greens, tomato, onion, and pickles, or whatever your heart desires! This is a light, fun, summery dinner that I think you are going to love!
