Broiled Marinated Tofu Sandwich

Yield:
2 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces firm tofu (Chinese-style)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each ground cumin, chili powder and dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 medium clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 thick slices whole wheat bread, lightly toasted
  • Chili mayonnaise (see below)
  • Sliced tomato, washed arugula and, optional: slices of red onion
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Cut tofu into 1-inch thick slices. Drain. Set them on a sheet, cover with another baking pan or cookie sheet and weight down with something heavy; drain for at least 1/2 hour to remove excess water.

In a small cast iron skillet toast cumin, chili and oregano until they emit a lovely aroma. Remove to a nonreactive saucepan and add olive oil, garlic, vinegar and white wine. Bring to a simmer. Transfer drained and weighted tofu to a ceramic or glass dish and pour marinade over tofu. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for a day at least or, for up to 3 to 4 days.

Preheat the broiler. Remove marinated tofu, pat dry and broil, about 6 inches away from the heat until crispy on each side.

Spread bread with mayonnaise; slice tofu in half to make 1/2-inch slices and set over mayonnaise. Top with tomato, arugula and onion if you wish. Spread second slice of toasted bread with chili mayo and cover sandwich.
