Recipe: Mediterranean Sandwich with Tofu Feta

I know, I know, I hardly ever post recipes.  It’s not that I don’t cook; I just never pay attention to amounts.  Ironic, since we are working on a cookbook.  Maybe that’s what is taking us so long!

Anyway, I have come up with the yummiest sandwich ever, and I wanted to share the recipe:

  • 2 slices bread (I usually use the sprouted bread, but we had some leftovers from French toast)
  • 2 slices Tofurky deli meat -- I like the Italian flavor
  • 1 Persian cucumber (although any will do), sliced
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced
  • vegan tofu feta (recipe below)
  • red onion, sliced, to taste
  • lots of alfalfa sprouts!
  • hummus (I get mine at the local Persian market)

Spread the hummus on one of the bread slices and add toppings.  Best eaten cut in half since it is rather a mouthful!

Vegan tofu feta, borrowed with love from

  • 1 package of extra firm tofu
  • 1 bottle of Eden ume plum vinegar

Cut tofu into cubes, soak in vinegar overnight.  They say two hours, but I wanted mine extra flavorful.  Rinse well to remove the extra saltiness (and it will be salty!).  EdenFoods has an iPhone app that has an amazing amount of vegan recipes; I am really enjoying it.



This sandwich is great for kids, also -- I just left the sprouts off for my two year old who has trouble chewing them.  You could also toast the bread, I suppose, or add olives or whatever tickles your fancy!  Enjoy!
