Tofu! Once again, a recipe that shows tofu can be good if you give it some flavor. This sandwich is a great conveyor of bbq sauce with protein and vegetables. I admit that I was a bit doubtful when I saw the recipe on Enlightened Cooking, but I enjoyed it, as did Chris.
1/4 C. reduced fat mayonnaise
1 T. prepared horseradish
Juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
1 14-ounce package extra-firm tofu – drained
Salt and pepper
Red onion – thinly sliced
French bread – sliced
1/2 C. bottled bbq sauce
Slice tofu and press out excess liquid with paper towel. Heat up the grill pan and brush tofu with oil on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Grill tofu on each side for several minutes.
While grilling, mix together the mayo, horseradish and lemon juice/zest. Brush slices of bread with the horseradish mayo and layer on red onion and arugula. Once tofu is done, place on top and drizzle bbq sauce on top. Serve with sweet corn!
Notes: You really need to use extra-firm tofu for this and use a really good quality bbq sauce.
Servings: 8 sandwiches
