Grilled Tofu and Zucchini Sandwich

I’m not huge on sandwiches…If I have to choose for a quick meal, I’d rather go for a salad or some fruits.
however for my last bike road trip (100 km) I needed to make some easy-to-carry snack and well, sandwich was definitely the way to go. I still wanted it to be light but packed with nutrients and, of course, tasty. I decided to go vegetarian and made myself a grilled tofu and zucchini one!

Here is how you make it 🙂

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 slices of bread (white or whole grain)
  • 200 g firm tofu
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. chilly pepper (optional)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. sesame dressing (Japanese)
  • 1 tsp. canola oil

Pre head oven at 200 C and toast the bread on both sides.

In a skillet heat up 1 tsp. of canola oil and cook tofu on both sides on medium heat until it gets a nice golden-brown color (about 5 min per side). Remove from the pan and set aside
