NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 green), thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
  • 10 ounces extra-firm tofu, sliced into 8 pieces and patted dry
  • 4 whole-wheat sub rolls, split
  • 1/3 cup marinara sauce, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 6 cups baby arugula
  • 1 ounce parmesan cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
Directions
  • Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 425 degrees F. Toss the onion and peppers with 1 tablespoon olive oil on a baking sheet. Season with salt and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Bake on the lower oven rack, turning once, until slightly golden, 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, line another baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, the fennel seeds, remaining 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Brush the tofu pieces on both sides with the oil mixture and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake on the upper oven rack until golden, 15 minutes.

  • Brush the roll bottoms with the marinara sauce. Top each with 2 slices tofu, some onion and peppers and the roll tops.

  • Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the balsamic vinegar in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and toss; top with the parmesan. Serve with the subs.
