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


  1. Heat olive oil and onions over medium heat, 5-7 minutes or until onions are browned. Set onions aside.
  2. Add tofu to skillet searing 3-4 minutes on both sides. Set aside.
  3. Toast bread and layer with barbecue sauce then tofu. Top with sauteed onions and fresh veggies.
  4. Plate sandwich and serve with kettle chips or baby carrots
