Bizarre but Tasty Tofu Tomato Sandwich (And Good for You Too!)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

I "cooked" this up when I wanted a fuss-free dinner and all I had at hand were tomatoes, really soft bread, tofu, and hummus! Don't let the combination of ingredients put you off; this tastes yum! You can also have this for a healthy snack, or even for breakfast.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 slice fresh whole wheat bread
  • 1 tablespoon hummus
  • 14 cup tofu, crumbled
  • 12 plum tomato, chopped
  • salt and pepper


  1. Spread the hummus evenly over the 2 slices of bread.
  2. Roast (yes, roast!) the crumbled tofu in a non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat for a about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Lower the flame, add the chopped tomatoes, and saute with constant stirring until the tomatoes are soft.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and saute for another minute.
  5. Remove from flame, and pile the tofu-mixture over one bread slice (hummus side up).
  6. Season with extra salt and pepper if necessary, cover with the other bread slice and eat immediately, with ketchup, if desired.

Anu, you posted this just in time. I have a huge amount of people coming over later today for a BBQ and wanted a simple vegan breakfast this morning. The sandwich may be simple, but it's taste is outstanding! I used some whole wheat multi-grain bread. I also cut the tofu to fit the bread instead of crumbling it. I seared it on both sides after sprinkling it with some hot pepper seasoned olive oil. With a fresh and tasty tomato no ketchup was necessary. I will definitely make this sandwich often, for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thanks so much!

Bizzare - no, tasty - yes! I don't usually have white bread in the house, but I had some white flour tortillas. The filling made a great wrap with roasted pepper hummus. Very quick to assemble. Can't wait to try it as a sandwich, too!
