Broiled Za'atar Tofu and Zucchini Sammich

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Poor College Kid

I'm such a fan of 'sammiches.' This one is really easy and my uber-picky roommmate even said it smelled good. I made it on regular bread 'cause there wasn't anything else on hand, but it would be great on a baguette.

A very good effort! I made th mistake of using sourdough bread for the sandwiches and the sour taste of the bread coupled with the sour taste of the sumak was overpowering. So next time, I used a plain wheat bread and it was much better. I drizzled a bit of grapeseed oil on the bread slices before broiling. Oh, broiling at 300 degrees didn't make sense to me. Broiling is at much higher temperature...?? For the mozarella I used the more favored imported parmesan. This will be a fun sandwich recipe to play around with. Thanks for sharing it. cg

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crumble or slice the tofu thinly (think sandwich), roll or coat in za'atar evenly.
  2. Lay both slices of bread on baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle one slice of bread with some of the cheese, lay tofu over it, sprinkle with more cheese.
  4. Place zucchini slices on other piece of bread, sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Salt and pepper if desired.
  6. Broil on 300 for 10 minutes or so, or until cheese melts and zucchini looks browned.
  7. Put slices together, cut diagonally (sammiches taste best when cut diagonally), and enjoy!
