Tofu Parmesan Open Faced Sandwich

I thought the sauce was fantastic for this and I was amazed my mozzarella was actually good. Recipe taken from here.


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 TBSP dried basil
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 TBSP Italian seasoning (I used a mix of Rosemary, Basil and Thyme)
  • 1 block of tofu, drained and dried a bit, sliced into 4-6 slices (depends on the number of sandwiches you want to make)
  • 4 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 4-6 slices of mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup spinach


1) Heat the tomatoes, garlic, basil and water in a pan until thickened (it takes about 10-15 minutes, so don’t worry!)

2) Mix the Parmesan, bread crumbs and Italian seasoning.

3) Dip the tofu in the egg and then the Parmesan mixture.

4) Heat half the olive oil in a pan and add the tofu, cooking on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.

5) Top as such: bread, tomato sauce, tofu, mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and bake on ‘toast’ setting for 2-4 minutes.

6) Heat the rest of the olive oil in a pan.

7) Add the spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes.

8) Serve on the side, or on top of the sandwich.
