Ingredients:

Crispy Tofu Sandwiches

  • 1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained well
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 pita or naan bread
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Chinese parsley
  • Lime wedges (optional)

Sauce:

  • 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon shoyu
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger or to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lite coconut milk or water

Directions:

Cut tofu crosswise into 8 slices; cut each slice into two triangles. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Carefully place tofu in skillet; cook about 5 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy. Transfer tofu to plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil; set aside.

Whisk together all sauce ingredients. Thin sauce with additional coconut milk, one tablespoon at a time, if necessary; set aside.

Heat pita or naan bread, according to package instructions. Top each with 4 pieces of tofu, shredded carrot, red pepper, green onion, Chinese parsley, and peanut sauce and fold. Serve with optional lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
