My husband and I found an organic restaurant here in town, and when I had my first tofu sandwich, I fell in love with it. I had to go home and figure out my own recipe immediately! This uses firm-extra firm tofu and tastes great on a toasted whole wheat bun.

I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would. So easy, with nice flavor and satisfying. I used the optional paprika and cooked it in a skillet with a little cooking spray for about 4 mins. on each side. I'm not a vegan so I topped it with a slice of cheese, lettuce tomato, onion and mayo. Thanks for posting the recipe, I'll be making this again.

Yep, this is delicious!! It would work well wth any spice mix. I used a very seedy multigrain bread. The kids loved this, too! ade for PAC Fall '07.
