"A tasty vegetarian sandwich. Tofu holds a marinade very well, then crisps up nicely under a broiler."

  1. Cut tofu into 10 thin slices. Set on a baking sheet, cover with another baking sheet, and weigh down with something heavy, such as a large can of food. Drain until excess water is removed, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a small cast iron skillet over medium heat. Toast ground cumin, chili powder, and oregano in the hot oil until spices are aromatic, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Transfer oil and spice mixture to a saucepan over medium heat; stir in minced garlic, white wine vinegar, and white wine. Bring to a simmer, then remove marinade from heat.
  4. Place drained tofu into a glass dish; pour marinade over tofu. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  5. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  6. Remove tofu from marinade; pat dry with paper towels and place on broiler rack. Broil on each side until skin is crisp, about 6 minutes per side.
  7. To assemble, spread mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread; place 2 tofu slices on 5 of the bread slices; top tofu with sliced tomato, arugula, red onion, salt, black pepper, and remaining slices of bread.

Excellent. First tofu sandwich I've tried. I tried this with silken tofu because that's what I had on hand, and it's fine, but the regular kind is better--has a better texture. Mine took longer under the broiler than this recipe says--just go till it looks good. It has a a bit of a tang to it, and I'm not sure if that's the vinegar in the marinade, or the tofu itself. But it was good. Oh, and I didn't use wine because I didn't have it, so I use broth.
