Serves: 4 


  • 400g extra firm tofu (drained and rinsed)
  • Eight slices of whole wheat bread (toasted)
  • Four pieces of lettuce
  • Two large tomatoes, sliced

  2. Mix the soy sauce, mustard and half teaspoon of the adobo sauce in a bowl.

Spread half of the mustard mixture on the side of the tofu pieces using a spoon. Turn the slices over then spread the remaining mixture. Bake the tofu for about 20 minutes.
  4. While waiting for the tofu to get cooked, prepare a pan and add olive oil in. When oil is getting hot, add mushrooms, pepper, salt and parsley or coriander (optional) and then stir well, until mushrooms are turning gold brown
  5. Combine the remaining adobo sauce with the mayonnaise in a bowl. Spread the mixture on one side of the bread.
  6. Setting up the layers of the sandwiches with the red cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, tofu, mushroom, onion and lettuce again. Top with the remaining toast so you would end up with four sandwiches.
