Filet O'Tofu

This sandwich is fantastic!  It screams for a hard crusty roll,

so make sure you have them on hand before making this.

Ingredients

1 block extra firm tofu, drained and sliced into 1/2" slices

The liquid from one can of chickpeas

1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs

2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast

1 Tbsp. kelp powder

2 tsp. paprika

1 1/2 tsp. onion powder

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

Crusty Rolls

5 slices of Romaine lettuce, sliced into 1/4" strips

 

Tartar Sauce:

1/2 cup vegan mayo (see recipe)

1/4 cup sweet pickle relish

Mix together and set aside.

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, kelp, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Coat the tofu slices in oil and dredge in the breadcrumb mix.  Make sure the slices are coated well.  Lay each slice on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.  Flip slices and bake an additional 7-10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool.
