Healthy Baked Tofu Sandwich {vegan}

I figure that all the years I worked in Deer Valley bakery, Robbie made over 2000 baked tofu sandwiches for me. He wanted me to have a healthy lunch—instead of munching cookies and chocolate all day, which he knew was my habit. You can use purchased baked tofu for this baked tofu sandwich or if you want, make your own. This recipe teaches how to make flavorful homemade baked tofu to go in sandwiches and stir-fries–you name it!

I called Robbie’s baked tofu sandwiches love sandwiches because he always drew a heart on top of the plastic wrap–and he made them with love. Most of the time the “meat” was Roma Tomato Basil Baked Tofu; we bought it until our store discontinued that flavor. Now that I work at home, I make homemade baked tofu, for sandwiches and more.

Baked Tofu Sandwich recipe details:

  • Use the tofu that comes packed in water—the one with a perishable date–do not use aseptic packed tofu.
  • Freeze the tofu in the water until it is solid before thawing.
  • Baked tofu that has been frozen and then thawed before marinating has an incredibly meaty texture. Fresh tofu can be substituted–the texture will just be more, well, tofu-y.
  • Robbie used to spread about a tablespoon of cottage cheese on top of the avocado. When he builds one for himself, he sprinkles diced red onion over the avocado or cottage cheese.
  • We choose Bubbie’s pickles, delicious naturally fermented, no vinegar, with plenty of probiotics.
