My Favorite Tofu Sandwiches

Breaded and well-seasoned tofu that imitates chicken flavor, fresh vegetables and delicious maple mustard sauce. Needless to say more. Deliciousness.

🍽 Serves 2

🕘 15-20 minutes


  • 1 block of firm tofu


  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 Tbsp mustard

  • 1 tsp peanut butter

  • ½ tsp maple syrup @ceresorganics

  • ¼ onion powder

  • ¼ garlic powder

Breadcrumb mix:

  • ½ cup breadcrumbs

  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast @realfooddirect

  • 1 Tbsp corn flour

  • 2 Tbsp plain flour

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp Italian herbs

  • ½ tsp plant-based chicken stock powder (optional)

Mustard maple syrup sauce:

  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 3 Tbsp neutral oil to fry

  • Vegan butter/vegan mayo

  • Vegetables of your choice (I used tomatoes, lettuce, yellow capsicum/bell pepper)


  1. Press the tofu.

  2. Prepare the marinade: in a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade. Set aside.

  3. Prepare the breadcrumb mix: in a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the coating. Set aside.

  4. Cut the tofu in half lengthwise and once again in half widthwise to make 4 thick slices.

  5. Place 2 slices of tofu in the marinade. Flip and make sure they are evenly covered.

  6. In a large frying pan, heat the oil to medium.

  7. Drop the marinated tofu in the breadcrumbs mix, flip to cover evenly and place on a heated frying pan.

  8. Fry until golden, approx. 4-5min on each side. Place on a paper towel to dry it from excess oil.

  9. Repeat with the remaining tofu slices.

  10. In a small bowl, combine mustard and maple syrup to create the sauce.

  11. Assemble the sandwich: toast the bread, spread vegan butter/vegan mayo, place lettuce, breaded tofu, tomatoes, capsicum. Pour the sauce over the sandwich and cover it with a slice of bread.

  12. Enjoy! 💚
