One thing I really miss since becoming a vegetarian are deli sandwiches! Of course, you can have a deli sandwich without the deli meat, but that usually just leaves you lettuce and cheese...not exactly satisfying or nutritious. The other option of course are those processed vegan deli meats but, in all honesty, those are just not for me and my tastebuds.
That being said, most of those vegan deli meats are made of tofu, right? Why not just season/marinate organic tofu and slice it thin like deli meat? That way you know it's fresh, and you know what's in it. The result is delicious, plus the flavor possibilities are endless!
- Organic firm tofu, plain
- Teriyaki, bbq, pesto or any other marinade
- Olive oil (for skillet)
- Small to medium skillet
- Marinade the firm tofu overnight.
- The next day, slice the tofu about 1/2 inch thick so you have thin, square slices. If you slice them too thin, the tofu will break when you try to flip it in the skillet.
- Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet on med-low heat
- Place your marinated tofu slices in the skillet, one at a time. Brown on each side and remove to a paper towel to remove excess oil.
- Add to a sandwich with your favorite toppings in place of meat!
