Baked Tofu Sandwich

Baked Tofu Sandwich Recipe Vegan Gluten-Free

This baked tofu sandwich with a smoothie is a lovely idea for a vegan gluten free snack to take with you to school, work or a picnic! The baked tofu sandwich is satisfying and is perfectly complimented by the smoothie you can bring with you in a mason jar. We worked a lot until we could figure out a way to make tofu tasty and colorful without frying it, and we are proud to present you with the results. This is another recipe idea by Dimitra Makrigianni who is a nutritionist we are working with to create a vegan nutrition project this week.

Baked Tofu Sandwich Vegan and Gluten Free

Ingredients for the Baked Tofu:

  • 200 grams of firm tofu
  • 2 cups (400 ml) of water
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of curry
  • 1/4 teaspoon of tumeric
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice

Instructions for the Baked Tofu:

  1. Strain the tofu from the excess liquid by gently pressing it against a cutting board. Slice it but be careful not to slice it too thin or it will fall apart.
  2. Whisk all the other ingredients in a large bowl for the marinade. Place the tofu slices in the bowl. Make sure the slices are covered with the marinade. Marinade overnight (12 to 24 hours).
  3. Preheat your oven to 160° C (320° F).
  4. Pour some of the marinade in an oven safe pan.  Add the tofu slices. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip them over with a spatula and bake for 10 more minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and get ready to make your sandwiches!

  1. I add turmeric to so many things just for the beautiful color! This looks great, and I like that you’re working with a nutritionist to build your recipes this week. Looking forward to seeing the rest 🙂

    1. Plus tumeric has some nice health benefits too! It really does a great job of coloring foods (and hands) like your famous vegan tahini cheese recipe! The nutritionist cooperation was all Athanasia’s idea and I think it’s great too. We have some cool recipes coming this week!

  2. This looks good! Always looking for interesting sandwich ideas and like the mention of bringing it to work with a smoothie.Love!
