When it comes to making a tofu sandwich, a few flavorful touches can make all of the difference. In this sandwich, smoked tofu is used and marinated in a garlicky soy sauce mixture, drizzled with BBQ sauce, and then topped with flaked almonds. These savory components contrast wonderfully with the refreshing zucchini and creamy avocado. Yum!

  • Smoked paprika powder
  • Avocado
  • Flaked almonds
  • BBQ sauce of your choice

  2. Fry the zucchini and tofu in a pan with a bit of oil and pour the marinade over it so it absorbs all the flavors.
  3. In a separate pan, heat up some oil and add the almond flakes and some salt. Carefully toast until they get a nice brown color. Stir all the time on medium heat and make sure it doesn't burn.
  4. Now deseed and slice up an avocado.
