Tofu Bacon Sandwiches
All semantics aside though, this was a very satisfying sandwich that felt slightly healthy. I'm in love actually.
recipe on the Whole Foods website which has many surprisingly good recipes on it.
Ingredients (makes 4 sandwiches)
1 14oz package extra firm tofu, drained
2 Tbsp liquid aminos
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast*
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp water
8 slices of bread
1. After draining the tofu, cut it into 12 slices. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a wide, shallow dish whisk together the liquid amino, paprika, nutritional yeast and water. Arrange the tofu in the dish, flip to coat with marinade and then let sit for about 15 minutes.
2. Place the tofu on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes until firm and lightly browned, flipping halfway through. To assemble the sandwich, spread mayonnaise on one slice of toasted bread, put on cucumber slices, then lettuce and then three slabs of tofu. Top with another piece of bread.
*nutritional yeast is kind of weird, I will admit but whatever it is, it tasted good. I found it in the bulk bins at whole foods.
