Recipe Courtesy of House Foods and Kathy Patalsky

This California-style snack or meal is booming with flavor. Toasty little smoky-sweet cubes of tofu top avocado toast with sliced tomato and quick candied almonds. This is like a “BLT” only way better, IMHO. Fast and delicious go-to meal.

Ingredients

For the Tofu

  • 1/2 Package tofu, such as House Foods Tofu, extra-firm, cubed
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 Teaspoon smoky paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Almonds

  • 1/2 Cup sliced almonds
  • 2 Teaspoons maple syrup

For the Sandwich

  • 2 Slices sourdough bread
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • 1 Small tomato, sliced
  • 1 Lemon, sliced and zest for topping

Directions

For the Tofu

Rinse the skillet if desired. In the same skillet, add the oil and tofu. Saute for 3 minutes, until the edges start to brown. Then add in the maple syrup and smoky paprika. Sauté for another 2 minutes. Turn off heat. Add the salt and pepper to taste and set tofu aside.

For the Almonds

Warm a large skillet over high heat. Add the almonds and toast for one minute. Add in the maple syrup and sauté for another minutes. Turn off heat and transfer the coated almonds to a small bowl. As they cool, the sweetener will become nice and sticky.
