Arrange the tofu sandwiches in a shallow pot.

Drizzle the sauce on the tofu sandwiches.

Nutritional benefits

I love tofu and mum and I were brainstorming ways of new ways of using tofu in our dishes. It wasn't long before a tofu sandwich idea emerged. This idea was partly based on a traditional asian dish called Mapo Tofu, which is essentially tofu pieces with mince in spicy sauce. 

This dish is a great source of protein and becomes a very well balanced meal when served with rice and some steamed veggies.
