Marinated Tofu Breakfast Sandwich

Updated: Feb 16

This breakfast sandwich is what we are eating on repeat this winter. It comes together so quickly and you can feed a crowd on a budget.

The combination of the smokiness of the cheese and tofu, with the spicy kick of the Sriracha mayo and the crunch of the fresh tomato and lettuce is perfect. If you prefer to leave out the Sriracha you can use plain vegan mayonnaise instead and they are almost as good.

Marinate your tofu the night before so that it has time to absorb all the flavours in the marinade and slice the tomatoes. In the morning all you have to do is sauté the tofu and toast your English muffins. It can be served buffet style if you're serving a crowd and everyone can assemble their own.
