Asian Marinated Tofu Sandwich With Teriyaki Aoili

This is a perfect summertime sandwich.  You will love it!  I made this for lunch yesterday.  Princess M was at school and my 2, almost 3 year old was swimming at Grandma's... so I decided I would actually make myself some lunch.  It seems like most days I just eat on the go.... a smoothie, a Lara Bar, a handful of this or that are my most common lunch items.  But, yesterday, I took a little time for myself and had a great lunch!  I wasn't totally kid-free... I did have my 3 month old sous-chef, but he's pretty low key.  All in all, this mama had a great meal and this sandwich was the key ingredient!

Teriyaki Aoili

2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup vegan mayonaise
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced

Combine ingredients and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Asian Marinated Tofu Sandwich

Fresh bread of your choice
6 oz extra firm tofu, cut into thin slices and patted dry with a paper towel
1 cup teriyaki sauce
teriyaki aoili
tomato, sliced
red onion, sliced
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt to taste

1.  Marinate tofu in your favorite teriyaki sauce for a few hours.
2.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.  Add tofu and cook until golden.
3.  Layer veggies on one side of your bread.
4.  Top with tofu and drizzle with your teriyaki aoili.  Close sandwich and enjoy!
