Tofu and Parmesan Sandwich sliced in half on a white tray

For a quick and delicious lunch, there is nothing better than a satisfying sub sandwich. While usually the fillings include deli meats like ham or turkey, you can always adjust your sandwich to include some meatless alternatives like soy, lentils or portobello mushrooms. With the right seasonings, you won't even miss the meat.

In this Tofu Parmesan Subs recipe from Food Network Magazine, the traditional Italian dish chicken Parmesan gets a vegetarian makeover with tofu, which is stuffed between two slices of crusty Italian bread. The tofu is coated in eggs and covered in a breadcrumb-and-cheese coating, with a pinch of Italian seasoning for flavor. Melted, nutty Parmesan and a tomato sauce made with basil and garlic cover the bread, and a piece of wilted spinach cooked in olive oil packs in a nutritional punch. The result? A filling lunchtime staple.
