Smoked tofu sandwich recipe



Smoked tofu is generally firm in texture and has a tasty smoky flavour which you can eat raw or cooked.

To make Chef Jeenas smoked tofu sandwich, very lightly fry smoked tofu on each side and top with salad on a fresh brown seeded bread bun.

Tofu does not contain high amounts of saturated fat and has zero cholesterol, so if you are looking for a great alternative to a sausage sandwich then smoked tofu is the answer as the taste is wonderful and is good for you.

On occasion we also lightly fry some mushrooms and onions and squirt a little tomato ketchup onto a smoked tofu sandwich, as it can taste really good.

Serve with some sweet red pepper pieces. Red peppers are very high in vitamin C and other vitamins.

This smoked tofu contained sesame seeds which gave it a lovely flavour.



Use fresh tomatoes and rocket for the inside of this sandwich.




Making this smoked tofu sandwich


Gently fry the smoked tofu in a little oil on both sides - about 2-5 minutes.

Tofu does not take long to cook - just heat the tofu through and give the smoked tofu a slight golden colour to it.



Pat the smoked tofu with kitchen paper to remove any excess fat.

Stack the tofu on the bread and top with salad.



Start with tomatoes.



Top with rocket.



Enjoy a delicious smoked tofu salad sandwich.

This sandwich looks great. I have had a tofu dish at a restaurant we like, and now that I see this, it's probably smoked tofu in it. I"ve never had it, but think I"ll try it now:-)
