  • 2-3 slices tofu (firm or extra firm)

  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

  • 1 large white onion (diced)

  • Splash of sherry

  • Splash of worcestershire sauce

  • Chimichurri
  • 1 diced shallot

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

  • 3-4 diced garlic cloves

  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

  • 2 tbsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Dijonnaise
  • 1 part mayo

  • 1 part whole grain mustard


  • Start with dicing the white onion and sauté on medium/low heat in olive oil. Stir often and let it reduce for 45-50 minutes. About 20 minutes into frying, add a splash of sherry and worcestershire sauce and mix in.
  • Cut your tofu into slices and press them with a paper towel to get any moisture out. Once that is done, coat the slices in cornstarch and fry in a pan until crispy. Season with whatever you like!
  • Prep the dijonnaise by mixing in a small bowl, 1 part mayo and 1 part whole grain mustard.
  • Dice the shallot and garlic cloves and add into a small bowl with the red wine vinegar, salt, red pepper flakes and extra-virgin olive oil. Finely chop the cilantro and parsley and add to the bowl and mix everything together.
  • Once the caramelized onions are ready and your tofu is crispy, toast the ciabatta bun and assemble!
  • I assembled my sandwich in this order, but do whatever you’re feeling!
    Toasted bun, dijonnaise on both sides, tofu, caramelized onions, shredded cheese and chimichurri!
  • Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed making this sandwich as much as I did!
