Sriracha Sesame Tofu Sandwich


Forget greasy ham, egg and cheese sandwiches. This recipe swaps in healthy additions like a whole grain baguette, tofu and a hefty dose of tomatoes and greens. This recipe comes to us from Sharon Palmer of SharonPalmer.com and appears in The Home Cook Breakfast Book, a collaboration between Meatless Monday and Earthbound Farm.

Serves 4

  • 1 (15 oz.) package extra firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (may decrease or increase according to spice preference)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 1/2 cup green and red baby lettuce leaves
  • 4 1-ounce slices whole grain baguette

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Drain tofu and slice in half lengthwise, and in half crosswise, to create 4 rectangular pieces. Place in a small baking dish.

Mix together soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sriracha sauce, and sesame seeds. Drizzle over tofu.

Place tofu on top rack of oven and cook for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.

While tofu is baking, place baguette slices on a small baking sheet and place in oven to toast for about 5 minutes, until browned and crisp.

To arrange sandwiches, place one toast on a serving dish, layer with one-fourth of the lettuce leaves, 1 slice of baked tofu, and top with 1 slice tomato. Repeat to make 4 open face sandwiches.

 

Serve immediately.
