Hello & Happy Monday!!
If there is one thing I crave, it’s a fun vegan sandwich! The majority of my days are filled with green juice, salads and fruit. However, I love to mix it up and make a faux meat concept from scratch. While I know there are so many good ready made options, this crispy tofu sandwich is so cheap and easy to throw together and a million times better than any frozen patty.
Don’t believe me?
My husband does not have an affinity for anything tofu, and ate the whole thing! lol
When it comes to tofu, it’s either you love it or hate it. If you hate it, it’s typically due to your preparation method not being effective. I personally love tofu in all ways, but the method that proves to be such a game changer is, freezing! Freezing allows the tofu to take on a animal protein like texture and is just such a more memorable experience. If you have a lil extra time, simply slice and throw it in the freezer to keep for when a craving strikes.
When thinking of the next best tofu creation since I’m hooked on freezing, I knew we had to do a chicken sandwich! Since we covered your staple chicken sandwich, I knew we had to do the next best thing, a Korean Bbq Tofu Sandwich! There is so much going on in this sandwich and countless reasons why it’s just a win all around.
If you’re not keen on frying, I’m with you. I thought about air frying, but you won’t get the same texture that mirrors a traditional chicken sandwich. What you can do though, is post frying you can place it in the air fryer or even the following day and fry it with removing excess oils.
What’s fab about this tofu chicken sandwich? Honestly, absolutely everything. It’s so easy to throw together, features staple ingredients, you can even mix up the marinade ingredients, the sauce can be used with other dishes, has notes of garlic and ginger, you can easily make this in bulk, make sliders, you can throw it in the air fryer the following day and even cut down on the oil content using it, switch up the toppings, the cucumbers add a hint of sweet, more texture, the sauce a hint of heat and sweet, the outer texture is perfection, the inner texture is chewy, and the jalapeño slaw just ties it all together.
