    You won't miss the meat because the tofu is pressed, glazed with a sweet, spicy sauce and topped with a crisp slaw of jicama and carrots! Adapted from Food & Wine magazine.

      Place the tofu on a work surface and top with a cookie sheet and 2 or 3 heavy cans or pans. Let stand for about 1 hour, or until tofu is very firm and liquid has been pressed out. Pat the toful dry.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, whisk the jalapeno jelly with the ketchup,soy sauce, sesame oil and 1 tbls. lime juice.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, mix sugar with garlic and minced jalapeno. Using the side of a spoon, mash the mixture to a paste. Add the fish sauce and remaining 1 tbls. of lime juice. Stir in the jicama, carrots, cilatro and mint.
    4. 4
      Light a grill or turn on the broiler. Brush the tofu and the cut sides of the rolls with the olive oil. Lightly grill(or broil) the rolls, about 2 minutes. Grill or broil the tofu until lightly charred, about 8-10 minutes. Brush on the jalapeno jelly glaze and grill(or broil), turning and brushing until nicely glazed, 2 to 3 minutes longer.

      Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on both halves of each kaiser roll. Mound the jicama slaw on the rolls and top with the tofu steaks. Colse the sandwiches, cut in half and serve! Enjoy!

      This is a wonderful gourmet tofu recipe. This will be on my list of recipes for any pesco-vegetarian guests we may have over for a BBQ in the future. The only changes I made were to serve this on french bread, cut the amount of tofu in half (I'm glad I did that because otherwise I would have had 8 sandwiches instead of 4), and to grate the jicama and the carrots instead of julienning them.

      I followed this exactly and loved every bite of this recipe. The tofu was outstanding, as I followed the method perfectly of de/watering the tofu, so that it was able to crisp up really well. Oh yes! I did make one change, I couldn't find jicama for the life of me. I *thought* we had places that usually had this vegetable, but I guess I was wrong. Instead I used a cabbage and mixed the same way, using the cabbage as I would of with the jicama. I can't say enough about the tofu and the jalapeno jelly was raining supreme. Oh if I had only known about this before! Will use this again, and hope to find jicama to bring the whole taste in order. Thanks so much, served with wedge tomato and onion. Terrific!

      This was okay, just a bit different from our usual way of using tofu. A different meal though which we enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
