Recipe type: Lunch & Dinner, Sandwich
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ¼ tsp liquid smoke
- 1 tbsp water
- Combine ingredients for marinade and mix with a fork or whisk. Marinate your tofu in a shallow bowl or pan for around 1 hour.
- Caramelize onions in a skillet with 1½ tsp of oil over low heat for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Use a thick bottomed skillet for even heat. Stir every few minutes, and add a little bit of water to the pan if necessary to stop the onions from drying out. Set the onions aside.
- In the skillet you used to caramelize your onions, heat ½ tsp of oil, and lay your marinated tofu in the pan. Cook over medium high heat. Sprinkle with a small amount of salt. Once the tofu has browned, flip and brown the other side.
- Lightly toast your bread. Spread one slice with Dijon mustard, and the other slice with a thin layer of mashed avocado. Over the avocado, layer your lettuce, tomato, caramelized onion, and tofu. Top with your other slice of bread, slice in half and enjoy!
