Deviled Tofu Sandwich

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

This is the vegan and vegetarian answer to an egg salad sandwich. Great for low cholesterol diets as it contains none at all. I would substitute a whole grain bread in the place of the white bread for a more wholesome sandwich.

Ingredients:

1 oz tofu

1/8 tsp soy sauce

1 pinch turmeric

1 tbsp green bell pepper, minced

1/2 tsp mustard

1 tbsp onion, minced (optional)

1 pinch paprika

2 slices white bread, toasted if desired

2 lettuce leaves

1 tomato slice

Directions:

Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Spread mixture on half the slices of bread. Layer with lettuce and tomato and top with remaining bread.

Serves 1
