These days, you can find almost anything served with buffalo sauce – which is a mixture of butter and hot sauce. The traditional Buffalo Sandwich is breaded, deep-fried, and smothered in the fatty condiment.

I’ve lightened up the typical buffalo sandwich by featuring a grilled, marinated tofu and making the sandwich into a po’ boy by adding a creamy slaw. The cabbage and apples in the slaw add crunch, the vegan mayo adds creaminess, and the vinegar gives it some needed acidity. This is a simple and easy to make, no fuss sandwich with all the authentic buffalo flavors.

Grilled Buffalo Tofu Po’ Boy with Apple Slaw

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Serves

4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce, plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 14 -16-ounce package tofu, pressed overnight, and cut into 12-inch slices
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 medium apples, grated
  • 1 medium shallot, grated
  • 6 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise, plus more for spreading
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 6-inch hoagie rolls or gluten-free wraps
  • 8 slices tomato

Preparation

  1. Combine the broth, hot sauce, and butter in a medium saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil, add the tofu slices and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the tofu for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes to marinate.
  2. Combine the cabbage, apple, shallot, mayonnaise, and vinegar in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper and mix well.
  3. Heat a large grill pan over medium heat. Drain the tofu, reserving the marinade. Grill the tofu until heated through and grill marks appear, about 5 minutes per side. Baste the tofu with the reserved marinade, as needed.
  4. Toast the hoagie rolls or warm the wraps. To assemble the sandwiches, spread a few teaspoons of mayo on the rolls or wraps. Add 2 slices of tomato and two slices of grilled tofu to each sandwich. Top with more hot sauce, if desired, and add slaw, to taste. Serve.
