Simple Tofu Sandwich Recipe

Creating a healthy, affordable, and delicious meal does not require a culinary degree.  No, nutrition is not limited to a unique domain of individuals.  I consider myself quite the amateur in the kitchen; however, I have found it quite easy to create simple, healthy recipes that the entire family will enjoy.  While this recipe is quite simple, it should still impress those family members who have not kicked the Standard American Diet (SAD).

The main ingredient in this recipe is tofu.  When buying tofu, be sure that it is organic and made with non-GMO soybeans.  Depending on the recipe, I usually stick to firm.  The picture to the right shows my favorite brand – Nasoya.  You can pick up a block of this tofu for under $2.50 from most grocers.  Let’s get on to the recipe…
Preparation: 10 minutes      Cook Time: 15 minutes    

Yield: 2 sandwiches

Ingredients
  • 1 block firm tofu
  • 2 radishes (sliced thin)
  • 1 large portabella mushroom (sliced into strips)
  • White onion (only need one slice)
  • 2 whole wheat hamburger buns (Trader Joe’s rocks)
  • Kale (1 large leaf)
  • Vegenaise horseradish sauce
  • Organic ketchup (no HFCS or preservatives)
  Let’s Get Cookin!
1.  Fry the tofu in a pan with (minimal) olive oil until crispy on all edges.
2.  Place the tofu on paper towels to allow excess oil to be drawn out.
3.  In the same pan (adding no more oil), sauté the slice of onion, sliced radishes, and portabella mushrooms.
 
4.  Time to construct your beautiful sandwich!  I put a little vegenaise horseradish sauce on both sides of the bun, ketchup on top, and kale to garnish.  Kale is so much better than lettuce in terms of nutrition and crunchiness.
