Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, grated ginger, sliced garlic, shallots, and lime juice. Add the tofu, gently mix, and marinate for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight. The longer the better.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Transfer the tofu to a baking sheet, and lay in a single layer. Place the sliced red pepper next to the tofu and bake for 7 minutes, then flip and bake for another 7 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl blend Miso Sesame Dressing with 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Spread 2 tablespoons of the dressing onto 2 slices of bread. Divide the tofu slices and red pepper on top, then the arugula. Spread another 2 tablespoons of miso sesame sauce on the remaining 2 slices of bread. Top the sandwiches with the dressed bread, slice in half, and serve.

Chef Tips

If there isn’t time to marinate the tofu, put it straight into an unlined baking dish and cover with the marinade. Turn the slices once to evenly coat. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Turn the tofu slices, and add the peppers. Turn the broiler on and proceed to step 2.
