Everyone say it with me, “marinated tofu is my friend.”!!!!!!!! Tofu is one of those products that come with absolutely no flava – but the blessing in that is you can make the flava all your own!!! This is my first time investing in marinating tofu and it makes ALL the difference ?? A HUGE TIP: Marinate your tofu overnight – if you don’t have time no worries, but if you do it creates a huge change in the tofu! literally took 15 mins to assemble and 5 to chow down ? This sandwich reminds me that being vegan doesn’t mean you take out simple dishes you would regularly have – it just means that you veganize it up a little!!! Ok so here’s what’s in the sandwich other than the spicy, scrumptious, (dare I say) crispy, marinated tofu – avocado, carrots, purple onion, cherry tomatoes, marinated lemon kale, sprouts, and spicy hummus all sandwiched between two wheat bread slices ? oh and I always add a drizzle of olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to ALL my sandwiches and wraps ?? deets for the tofu below! have a good day vegan lovas! Oh, and my how-to video can be found here!
