Barbecue Tofu Sandwich
When I lived in East Nashville Mitchell deli made this awesome Asian Tofu Sandwich. I missed it, so I decided to make my own version. The tofu is pan-fried and topped with sauteed onions and fresh veggies. I used my A+mazing homemade Multi-Grain bread but your favorite store bought gluten free bread will do as well.
1 package extra firm tofu, drained (cut 3 2 inch thick slices, lengthwise)
1/2 small onion, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup spring mix
1/4 English cucumber, sliced thin
6-10 banana pepper rings
1/2 small tomato sliced thing
2 slices gluten free bread
To taste: salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder
3-4 tablespoons barbecue sauce, be sure to ensure it is gluten free
slice of provolone cheese (optional)
1 serving kettle chips or baby carrots
- Heat olive oil and onions over medium heat, 5-7 minutes or until onions are browned. Set onions aside.
- Add tofu to skillet searing 3-4 minutes on both sides. Set aside.
- Toast bread and layer with barbecue sauce then tofu. Top with sauteed onions and fresh veggies.
- Plate sandwich and serve with kettle chips or baby carrots
