Mother Nature Tofu Sandwiches

Slice tofu crosswise into 4 slices. Place on tray lined with paper towels. Cover with paper towels and pat tofu to absorb moisture. When towels become soaked, replace with new towels. Let tofu stand and drain about 1 hour.


Combine flour and salt. Dip both sides of tofu slices in flour mixture, then in egg substitute, coating evenly, then in bread crumbs to coat.


Heat oil in skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Add breaded tofu slices and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.


Spread 1 tablespoon Sweet Miso Dressing on each kaiser roll. Top bottom half of each bun with 1 slice fried tofu, 1/4 cup sprouts, 2 slices tomato, 1/4 cup shredded carrot and 1/4 cup shredded lettuce. Place roll top on each sandwich, cut into halves and serve.

The Sweet Miso Dressing adds an interesting flavor to the tofu and vegetables in these sandwiches. Soybean oil can be found in health food stores and specialty markets.
