Amazing Marinated Tofu Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Erin Linnea

The idea for this comes from a great restaurant I worked at. Tofu is cooked in a great marinade and served in a sandwich with cheddar. For me, it's comfort food.

I used this for my first tofu sandwich. The marinade was good. I'm going to have to get used to the tofu on my sandwich, though.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the marinade, combine the oil, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice (lemon juice can also be used), and honey. Mix it with a fork until combined.
  2. Place the tofu in the marinade until ready to cook (this can be a few minutes or a few hours, it doesn't really matter).
  3. Cook the tofu in a pan with a little of the marinade, no oil is necessary as it is already in the marinade. Cook till golden brown (or to your liking).
  4. While the tofu is cooking, lightly toast the bread. Then spread the mayonnaise on one slice and the mustard on the other.
  5. When the tofu is cooked, place it on one slice of bread, put the cheddar on top, and place it bread-side down in the pan. Place the lid on the pan to let the cheese melt.
  6. When the cheese has melted, remove the sandwich, place any veggies on top of the cheese, and place the last piece of bread on top.
  7. Serve warm!
