Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches

Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches by Alison's AllspiceIt’s redux time again!  This month’s theme was: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 201, 17, 217 – or any combination of the number ‘2017.’   I chose to redux Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches from the Moosewood cookbook.

I don’t have a large collection of cookbooks, but I do love the moosewood cookbook. The recipe I chose was from page 120 for a grilled Chinese mustard sandwich with sauted peppers and onions. 

Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches by Alison's Allspice Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches by Alison's Allspice Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches by Alison's Allspice Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches by Alison's Allspice The recipe called for a slab of tofu in the grilled sandwich.  I decided I wanted to bake the tofu to make it chewier.  Therefore, I doubled the mustard sauce recipe to use in two ways.  Fresh on the sandwich, and as a sauce on the baked tofu!

I also opted for lettuce and tomato instead of peppers and onions, so everyone in my house would eat it.  I added mayo for a little creaminess and viola!  A sandwich is born.

Variations to the Chinese Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwiches recipe:

  1. I loved the chinese mustard recipe from the cookbook, but in reality you could use any sauce you like.  Try barbecue sauce or sriracha ketchup!
  2. Use your favorite sandwich veggies.   Lettuce and tomato are classics, but anything will work.
  3. Not into tofu?  Use your favorite protein, or simply use the Chinese mustard as a spread!
