FRENCH TOFU SALAD WITH GRAPES 3

Ingredients

FOR TOFU SALAD

1 teaspoon canola oil, if needed

1 pound extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed, and cut into ½-inch cubes

1 teaspoon tamari

¼ cup vegan mayonnaise

¼ cup quartered seedless green grapes

2 tablespoons minced shallot

1 tablespoon minced celery

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon slivered almonds, toasted

1 teaspoon minced fresh chives

½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

½ teaspoon minced fresh thyme

½ teaspoon minced fresh parsley

¼ teaspoon dried tarragon, crumbled

¼ teaspoon dried herbes de Provence

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

FOR SANDWICHES

1 cup arugula, for serving

One 16-inch baguette, cut in half lengthwise

Directions

To make the tofu salad: Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. If the skillet is well seasoned, no oil is needed. If it isn’t, add the canola oil. Add the tofu cubes and cook, pressing down with a spatula and stirring, for 7 to 8 minutes, or until lightly golden and a firmer texture. Remove from the heat and add the tamari. Transfer to a medium-size bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and season to taste. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to let the flavors meld.

To assemble the Sandwiches: Place the arugula on the bottom of the baguette. Spread the tofu salad evenly over the arugula and top with the other half of the bread. Cut into 4 pieces and serve.
