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)
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.
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 ‘cheese‘ has 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!
