Triple Stack Tofu Sandwich

Triple Stack Tofu Sandwich

Jake, the creator of this recipe over at PlantBasedOnABudget.com, says, "It's a little messy, delicious, and even a little healthy." Follow Jake's advice: "The trick for this sandwich is to slice the tofu really thin. Like, as thin as you can get it. So when you fry it, it crisps up a little on the edges. You'll thank me later. Don't be afraid to sub out or in some veggies, and add BBQ sauce. Mix and match with this thing and enjoy!"
