Easy Tofu Melts

My mother and I discovered this dish when we were trying new ways to cook tofu.

This recipe will make about 8 or 9 melts to a regular size block of tofu, enough for 2-4 people depending if it’s a side or a main.

1 block firm or extra firm tofu, sliced into slabs (about 2.5 cm thick)

1 avocado, sliced

1 tomato, sliced

3/4 cup daiya shreds

Bragg’s or soy sauce

2 tbsp oil (I use olive)
Step one:

Heat up half the olive oil in a medium-large pan.  

Turn to medium-high heat (or high if you’re lazy like me). 

Pop in the tofu slabs and season lightly with a splash of Bragg’s or soy sauce. 

Let cook for about 3-5 minutes, or until starting to crisp.

Step two:

Flip the tofu slabs and season with another splash of Bragg’s or soy sauce. You may need to add more oil to the pan at this point. 

Place a slice each of tomato and avocado on each tofu slab and top with a sprinkle of daiya shreds. 

COVER and let cook for another 2-4 minutes, until the ‘cheesehas melted and the tofu is crispy on both sides. 

Voilà you are done! Now you have some super delightful crispy fried tofu melts. I usually make them with tomato, avocado, and daiya but I’m sure there are unlimited variations possible. Let us know if you discover any other delicious toppings! I would try adding a leafy green or maybe roasted peppers and garlic.

I recommend eating them in the sunshine overlooking a lake for maximum deliciousness!
