14 oz firm or extra-firm tofu
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp canola oil
2 Tbs Spicewalla Blackening Rub
2 french bread hoagie rolls, toasted
Mayonnaise or Vegenaise
Shredded Iceberg lettuce
Hot Sauce (we prefer Crystal’s)
- Remove tofu from packaging and place on a plate lined with paper towels, cover the tofu with more paper towels then place a small cutting board or another plate on top and weigh down with a can or heavy bowl. Let sit for 30 mins to press as much water out of tofu as possible.
- After the tofu has been pressed, pat dry and use your hands to tear into bite-sized pieces. Place in a mixing bowl and add soy sauce and Spicewalla Blackening Rub, tossing to coat. Let sit for 10 minutes before cooking.
- Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, add tofu and cook, stirring occasionally until all sides have taken on a dark color, about 10 mins. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
- Build sandwich: Spread mayonnaise on both sides of the bread, place lettuce and tomato on bottom slice, top with hot sauce, then with blackened tofu. Serve immediately.
