Triple Decker Dinner Sandwich

This was one GREAT sandwich.  I find it hard not to like something that includes cherry tomatoes.  for someone who has not worked with tofu much, it was pretty easy, too.  And yes, that is a delicious Mojito in the background!

  • toasted Casatiello (or whole wheat bread)
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 2/3 C cherry tomatoes for puree + 1 C halved for sandwiches
  • romaine lettuce (better yet – fresh basil) for sandwiches
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 swigs balsamic vinegar + some for marinade
  • EVOO
  • dried basil
  • onion powder
  • chili powder
  • S + P
  1. Marinade slices of tofu in balsamic vinegar and olive oil for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Make tomato puree by pulsing cherry tomatoes + tomato paste + garlic clove + basil + dash of onion powder + swig of balsamic vinegar in immersion blender
  3. Toast the Casatiello slices (or whole grain bread) and spread with tomato puree. Grill slices of firm tofu in olive oil until browning and crispy.
  4. Layer tofu in the sandwich with lettuce (or fresh basil) and sliced cherry tomatoes. Season with black pepper and a tiny sprinkle of garlic powder and mild chili powder. Amazing hot or cold.
