Leaner Tip: Substitute 3 slices of bread (1 oz each) with 3 slices of grilled tofu (3 oz each) to reduce recipe by ~36g of carbs per slice.

Ingredients

  • 18 oz of “extra firm” tofu (sliced into 6 pieces about 3 oz each)
  • 2 cups of lettuce (romaine or iceberg)
  • 1 cup of sliced tomatoes (1/4″-1/2″ slices)
  • 4 slices of turkey bacon (or more if you love bacon)
  • 8 oz of sliced turkey breast
  • 1/4 tsp of mustard
  • 1/8 tsp of sea salt

Directions

  • Slice 3 oz of extra firm tofu so it resembles a piece of bread (should be ~1/4 of the packaged tofu)
  • Pat tofu slices completely dry with a paper towel; this process is important since it will help make the slices more crispy like toasted bread.
  • Set large non-stick sauté pan on medium heat. Then spray a bit of cooking or a add sliver of butter before carefully placing the tofu slices on the pan. Cook for about 10 min on each side or until you see that it’s a golden brown color; you can also add a pinch of salt to the tofu slices as an option. Set aside on a paper napkin when done.
  • Set to medium heat, please 4 slices of turkey bacon on to a non-stick pan and cook for about 3 min each side or until thoroughly cooked. Also set aside on a dry paper towel.
  • To stack the sandwich, start with one slice of cooked tofu, add 1/2 cup of lettuce, 1/4 cup of tomatoes, 1 pieces of turkey bacon, and 2 oz of turkey breast and repeat instructions. Top sandwich with one more tofu “bread” slice and garnish with a pickle; add mustard or mayo on the top tofu slice. Repeat directions to make the second sandwich and serve.
