Balsamic Tofu & Rice Sandwich


I came home from work starving and somehow inventive. I wanted something quick and easy. There was left over rice and a large unopened container or tofu in the fridge. A sandwich sounded appealing and somehow magic happened!

I literally just sauteed the tofu with balsamic vinegar with italian herbs. You could get fancy and fry the tofu with a standard recipe as well.

Balsamic Tofu & Rice Sandwich

Balsamic Tofu & Rice Sandwich

1/4 cup cooked rice (I used a wild rice & brown rice mix)

1/2 inch or 1 inch slice of extra firm tofu (I used azumaya lite tofu)

1 slice of daves killer bread (cut in half)

1/3 cup spinach

2 green olives (sliced thin)

1 tsp. dijon mustard

1 tsp olive oil

3 tbs. balsamic vinegar

2 tsp. italian herbs

Earth balance (optional for bread)

Mix the rice, dijon mustard, and sliced olives in a small bowl. Mix the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and italian herbs in a separate small bowl. Cut out a slice of tofu. (I divided my container of azumaya tofu into 1/2 inch slices.) Heat a frying pan on medium high. Pour the wet ingredients into the frying pan. Add the slice of tofu. Saute the tofu in the herb mixture for about four minutes until the tofu is slightly more firm and darkened by the absorption of the vinegar. Remove the tofu from the frying pan. Place the tofu, spinach and the rice spread on your slice of bread.

  1. Oo I could do with that right now – it looks so good!

  2. WOW that looks fabulous!! I’ve never tried combining tofu and balsamic! Did you use a whole package of tofu??

    • Thank you, Erika!! I used azumaya extra firm tofu–I divided the container of tofu into about 8 slices leaving each slice at about 1/2 inch thick. Just used one slice. Hope that helps!!
