Marinated Tofu Sandwiches – A Lunchtime Favorite

Sandwiches may possibly be the world’s most perfect meal.  Two slices of bread bookending an endless array of combinations.  I can eat anything between two slices of bread…and I mean anything.

R U serious…anything?

Let’s see…I have eaten spaghetti sandwiches, mac n’ cheese sandwiches, beans n’ rice sandwiches, Vegenaise and ketchup sandwiches, cucumber and cheese sandwiches, hummus sandwiches, bean curd sandwiches, lasagna sandwiches, seaweed and couscous sandwiches…the list goes on.  I think you get the point…I love sandwiches.  But besides eating whatever is leftover from last night’s dinner in between two pieces of bread, I can make some rather wonderful sandwiches – really, I can.

The Marinated Tofu sandwich is definitely one of my favorites.  It is full of flavor and great to send to school in your vegan child’s lunchbox.

You’ll need:

slice tofu

  • One block of Extra Firm Tofu sliced in 1/4 inch pieces – this should yield about 12 to 13 pieces

Line the troops up

  • Layer and arrange in a dish to await the marinade

The Liquids:

Liquid love

when it drizzles...it's good

  • Drizzle olive oil and liquid amino over the sliced tofu

The Dry Seasonings:

dry dry baby

  • 1/2 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

more flavor

  • Add your dry seasonings to the party and work into the tofu.  You’ll need to flip, rotate and massage the tofu to distribute all of that luscious flavor.

all mixed in

Now that your flavors are all mixed in, you can serve immediately or marinate overnight to intensify the flavors.  I usually serve right away because I am impatient…and greedy!

For your sandwich assembly:

Stop, veggie time!

Alright everybody…STOP!…It’s veggie time!

  • Lettuce leaves – washed and dried (I am using red leaf here)
  • Plum tomatoes – sliced
  • Green onions – finely sliced

Vegenaise

And of course, Vegenaise.  We are using the Grapeseed variety, or purple label, because it utilizes the healthiest oil.

Let’s put this sammie together, shall we?

slather the bread

  • Spread a little or a lot of Vegenaise on your bread and sprinkle some dried oregano and granulated kelp.

almost there

  • Add your marinated tofu to one side of the bread and drizzle some of the marinade on the other side for that extra punch of mouth watering, spectacular sandwich flavor

top w/ onions

  • Add some green onions

ste martaen smoked gouda

add vegan cheese

  • Add the Smoked Gouda vegan cheese

add tomatoes

  • Add tomatoes, then lettuce.

the beauty

Another masterpiece.  Job well done!  Serve with some of your favorite chips or some Goodness Rice Cakes and you have yourself a terrific lunch or light dinner.

Mouthwatering good!

A bonafide winner!  For you and your children.

Lunchtime!

Now that’s good eatin’!
