Tofu-Veggie Sandwich

Making sandwich is like starting your creation from blank canvas.  You choose the bread, stuffing and sauces/seasoning and you literally can have endless possibilities.

We are a sandwich lover duo and well,  an apple doesn't fall far from the tree. My little girl now and then asks for sandwich and this is perfect way to sneak in tofu and veggies. 

I like tofu but was tired of old school tofu-bhurji and stir fried tofu. Then thought of making some sort of sandwich. Also threw in some veggies and Chinese Sauces. And voila, my fusion sandwich is born :).

Pair it with your favorite soup/juice and healthy meal is ready in minutes. 

Makes 8 pcs
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

1 lb extra firm tofu
1 large potato
1/4 cup cabbage,  shredded
1/4 cup carrots,  shredded
1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp Ching's red sauce
1 tsp Ching's green sauce
1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp mayonnaise
16 slices of bread
Salt and pepper

1. Boil the potato and mash it thoroughly
2. Remove excess water from tofu by pressing it gently in kitchen towel
3. Crumble the tofu using fork
4. Heat olive oil in skillet
5. Add cabbage, carrot and green pepper
6. Saute it for 5 minutes and then add tofu along with salt
7. Mix well and cook it on medium-high flame until water evaporates and mixture becomes dry
8. Add mashed potato and pepper
9. Once it cools down, add all three sauces
10. Apply mayonnaise and butter on each slice, put the stuffing and grill it

11. Serve warm with hot and spicy tomato ketchup


P.S. I didn't add any sauces for kiddie version. Instead I added Chat Masala.
