- 1 block of firm or extra firm tofu
- Drizzle of avocado oil
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- 2 slices of sourdough bread
- 2-3 tbsp mashed avocado
- 2 lettuce leaves
- 1 sliced tomato
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- Start by draining the tofu in a colander and pressing it with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
- Slice the block into thin strips and arrange on an oiled baking sheet.
- Drizzle with avocado oil or another neutral-tasting oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
- Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes, flipping once after 15 minutes. The tofu should be crispy around the edges when it comes out of the oven.
- Next up is assembly! Toast two slices of sourdough bread and spread them each with mashed avocado (or whichever condiment you prefer).
- Layer the bottom slice of toast with crisp lettuce leaves, thinly sliced tomato, plenty of roasted tofu slices, and a few freshly ground black pepper turns for added flavor.
- Finally, top off your sandwich with the second slice of toast and cut in half for serving.
Serve this delicious crispy tofu sandwich alongside creamy mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables for a balanced meal that satisfies both taste buds and nutrition goals! For an extra flavor punch, add your favorite hot sauce to each bite or try experimenting with different seasoning combinations as you go along. Enjoy!
