1 block firm tofu, well drained
2 Tbs tahini (see hints below)
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbs mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 heaping Tbs grainy mustard
2 Tbs toasted sesame seeds
2 Tbs chopped green onion
whole wheat bread
Drain the tofu really well and then use a clean kitchen towel to gently squeeze some of the remaining water out of it.
Add it to a large mixing bowl with 2 Tbs tahini, 2 Tbs soy sauce, 2 tsp sesame oil, 2 Tbs mayonnaise, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, 1 heaping Tbs grainy mustard, 2 Tbs sesame seeds and 2 Tbs chopped green onion, and use a potato masher to mash everything until it is nicely combined.
Serve it on whole wheat bread with thinly sliced tomato and some sprouts if you like.
Tahini is basically a sesame seed version of peanut butter. You can find it in health food stores or in the specialty food isles of larger supermarkets.
Instead of a sandwich, spoon it onto toasted whole wheat bread as you go.
Substitute 3/4 cup toasted walnuts for the sesame seeds.
