2 strips tempeh bacon (try Turtle Island Foods’ Smoky Maple Bacon Marinated Tempeh)
1 vegan whole-wheat English muffin, cut in half and toasted (Many are accidentally vegan—just check the label!)
3 slices tomato (optional)
2 slices avocado (optional)
1 handful spinach (optional)
Using a drinking glass that has approximately the same diameter as the English muffin, cut a circle in the block of tofu. Separate the tofu round, then slice lengthwise in half to create two equal circular pieces. Store one of the pieces in an airtight container with a little water and place in thee fridge for when you’re ready to make another sandwich.
Combine the nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Place the remaining tofu piece in the bowl and press against the nutritional yeast mixture until completely covered.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the tofu until crisp, about 3 minutes on each side. Add the tempeh bacon and cook until crisp, about 2 minutes on each side.
Place the tofu on one half of the English muffin and top with the avocado, tomato slices, tempeh bacon, and spinach. Cover with the other half of the English muffin and enjoy!
Ohio University serves up this Grilled Vegan Cuban Tofu with Pineapple Lime Salsa & Fried Bananas as just one of their many vegan offerings which makes them a 2nd round contender in peta2’s Most Vegan-Friendly College Contest!
1/2 block extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into strips
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chipotle adobo sauce (optional)
6 yellow corn tortillas
1/2 cup mild green salsa
1 Tbsp. vegan sour cream (optional)
1 Tbsp. vegan cheese (optional)
Heat the oil in a pan and add the sliced onions, tofu, garlic, cumin, and salt. If you’re using the chipotle adobo sauce, you want to add it now. Let it cook for 5 minutes, or until the tofu is slightly golden.
Warm your tortilla on a separate pan or in the microwave-that way, they’re easier to work with. Place a tortilla on a plate and fill with 3 tablespoonfuls of the tofu mixture. Roll the tortilla with the filling and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Heat the green salsa and pour over the enchiladas. You can top these with vegan sour cream or vegan cheese!
