- 1 extra-firm tofu
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 tray white mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 red onion, minced
- 1 ciabatta baguette, cut in 4
- 3 oz creamy goat cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy or tamari sauce
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 tablespoons Red Star nutritional yeast
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its rich flavour)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sambal oelek
- Cut tofu in half across its width, then each half into 3 thick slices.
- Blend the marinade ingredients in a large bowl or airtight freezer bag. Marinate tofu slices 1 hour at room temperature or several hours in the fridge.
- Remove tofu from marinade and squeeze between sheets of paper towel. Coat them in cornstarch and shake off excess.
- Heat half the oil in a large pan. Brown mushrooms and onion, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until they’re cooked. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
- Heat the rest of the oil in a pan and brown the tofu slices 5 minutes on each side or until they’re crusty and golden.
- Put cheese on ciabattas, then slices of tofu, and cover with the mushroom-onion mixture. Top with baby spinach.
