  • Unpack Tofu. The first step is to press the tofu to remove excess water properly.

  • This can be done by wrapping the tofu in a clean towel or paper towel and placing a heavy object on top, such as a cast-iron skillet, for 20-30 minutes. This step is crucial as it allows the tofu to absorb flavors better.

  • Slice into pieces.

  • Next, marinate the tofu with barbecue sauce, paprika, and soy sauce. Let the tofu marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight for maximum flavor.

  • Heat and grease a non-stick skillet and cook marinated tofu on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side until the bbq sauce thickens and the flavor deepens. Keep turning at intervals. Once the tofu is cooked to perfection, remove it from the heat and set it aside. Tip — I prefer my tofu to be pan-cooked. It becomes sticky with sauce, making it challenging to handle tofu on a grill.
  • Time to assemble our sandwich. Start by toasting your bread to add some extra crunch and flavor.

  • Generously spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on both slices of the bread for a bold and tangy taste.

  • Next, add some crunch with a handful of fresh lettuce leaves. Not only do they provide a satisfying texture, but they also add a pop of color and dose of nutrition to the sandwich.

  • Add your marinated and grilled tofu slices to one side of the bread, making sure to layer them evenly. Tip — You can thinly slice tofu and add it to your sandwich too.
  • Top with onion and tomato slices. Tip — If you’re not a fan of onions, sliced pickles or jalapeños could work as well.
  • Add sprouts.

  • Consider adding avocado slices or a dollop of vegan mayo for a creamy element. This will balance out the smokiness of the barbecue sauce and provide an incredible, refreshing contrast.

  • Now that we have the perfect toppings, it’s time to put it together for a sandwich that will convert even the biggest meat lover.Serve and enjoy – this layered tofu sandwich will change your world, one bite at a time!
 
Frequently Asked Questions
 
Is this a make-ahead recipe?
It somewhat is! You can cook the tofu slices and refrigerate them separately. When required to serve, reheat the cooked tofu slices, slice the toppings, and assemble the sandwich. Your delicious sandwich is ready to be devoured and enjoyed! 
 
How can I store my leftovers?
This tofu sandwich is best enjoyed when fresh. But you can store the leftovers in the fridge. Transfer the leftover sandwiches to an air-tight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you need to serve, reheat in the panini maker until heated through. 
 
Can I freeze this recipe?
I would not recommend that. This recipe is not suitable for freezing. If you freeze it, the bread will turn soggy upon being thawed.
