• a bun
  • sliced tofu (enough to fit on the bun)
  • a wee bit of oil
  • spices of your choice
  • sliced onion
  • sliced mushrooms
  • Nayonaise ()
  • chili powder


Splash a little oil in a pan and toss your spices in there. Use whatever you like or whatever you’ve got. I like onion salt and garlic powder, and maybe some paprika for colour. Mix up the spices and oil, just so it not all in one clump.

Slice your tofu about a 1/4 of an inch thick or so. Frozen (then thawed) tofu provides a better texture, but if you’ve just got the “raw” stuff, that’s fine too.

Slice your onion and mushrooms (as much as you want on the sandwich, enough to smother the tofu, I say) and set them aside.

Fry the tofu till it’s a nice golden brown cooked colour. (flip it and fry both sides, of course). When it done, take it out of the pan and lay the slices between some paper towel to soak up any excess oil.

While your tofu is “draining”, toss the oinions and mushrooms in the leftover oil and fry them up a bit. I just fry them to warm them up a bit, but if you want to fry them ’till theier cooked, that’s up to you.

Spread the mayo on the the bun, sprinkle chili powder on the mayo, mix it up a bit (use your finger or a chunck of mushroom so you don’t have to dirty a fork ;) and viola, you have chili Nayonaise (which, by the way, makes every sandwich that uses mayo just that much better)

Tofu on the bun, ‘shrooms and onions on the tofu, and eat. yum, yum, yum.
