Tlt (Tofu, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich)

A smoky, mustard-chipotle sauce gives this baked tofu enough character to please even the most avid bacon fan. Make it a meal: add some oven fries and a tall glass of minty iced tea. To make ahead, prepare through step 4. Wrap the baked tofu in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Note: canned chipotle peppers (smoked jalapeños) add heat and smokiness to dishes: the adobo sauce alone adds a spicy zest without extra heat. Look for small cans in the Mexican food section in large supermarkets. Once opened they will keep for up to 2 weeks in refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer. (I always freeze what I don't use in a recipe.)

I haven't made this yet but did find it today on eating well web site. I had high hopes for this as it got really good reviews on that site. I wish the one star rater had added some comments. But I will still try it based on the other two good reviews. I will rate it as soon as I have tried it.

Hey! I just tried this recipe. I think I found it in my Cooking Light magazine. It's delicious. The adobo adds a nice spiciness to the sandwich. I used reduced calorie mayo along with my home made 100% whole wheat bread. Good stuff!
