Balsamic Tofu Sandwich 1

Sandwiches are a classic lunchbox staple. Think about it: what kind of lunches do you bring to work, or send your kids to school with? 

They probably have all the same types of components: a snack or two, a drink, and…a sandwich. There’s something about a sandwich that just rounds out a lunch nicely. 

But it seems like there are only so many ways you can make sandwiches. Eventually, you run out of ideas, and sandwiches start to seem a little boring. That’s where this recipe comes in.

This tangy, delectable sandwich has a flavor that makes it perfect for the spring and summer. The lettuce hearts and tomatoes piled on top give it a refreshing coolness and crunch. And we can’t forget the avocado slices, which add a touch of smooth creaminess.

Perhaps best of all, it’s so simple to make. You won’t need to struggle for hours preparing your lunch for the next day.

To start, just slice some tofu and soak it in balsamic vinegar. While it’s soaking, drizzle some tomato slices with a mixture of olive oil, Italian seasoning, and salt. 

Then you brown your tofu on the stovetop while your tomatoes bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Here’s a bonus tip: toast your bread slices in the oven for the last 5 minutes. It warms up your bread and gives it an amazing crispiness!
