Recipe by YummySmellsca
READY IN: 4hrs 10mins




  • Tofu:
  • Wrap tofu in a clean tea towel and press under a heavy weight for 1 hour.
  • Slice crosswise into ¼” pieces and set aside.
  • In a large plastic bag or a shallow glass baking dish, combine the remaining ingredients and shake to distribute well.
  • Add the tofu, seal the bag and gently distribute the pieces through the marinade (try to get them in one layer).
  • Let marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Heat oil in a large non-stick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the tofu in one layer (you will likely need to do this in batches).
  • Cook the tofu until both sides are golden brown with a nice firm crust.
  • Assembly:
  • Toast the baguette until golden.
  • Combine the mayonnaise and Sriracha and spread evenly onto one half of each sandwich.
  • Layer with lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, and tofu.
  • Top with Recipe #504020 and cilantro to taste.
