What You'll Need

  • 1 tsp each garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder

  • 1/4 cup each maple syrup and soy sauce
  • 1 block smoked tofu, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices wholegrain bread, toasted
  • Vegan mayo, to taste
  • 1 heirloom tomato, sliced
  • Lettuce leaves

Instructions

  1. In a shallow dish or large bowl, whisk together garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, turmeric, and pepper. Stir in maple syrup and soy sauce.
  2. Add tofu; marinate at least 30 min.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place tofu in a single layer on a lined sheet pan. Bake 30-35 min, flipping and brushing with more sauce every 10 min. Tofu should have crisped up and darkened. Remove from oven; let cool in pan, 10 min.
  4. To assemble, spread mayo on bread. Sandwich tomato slices, tofu, and lettuce between two slices of bread. Enjoy!
