And the summer sandwich kick continues. This one works with fresh mozzarella or extra firm tofu. You will need a farm fresh ripe tomato, basil, olive oil, and some balsamic for this one. It’s basically summer in a sandwich…no joke. The flavors and aromas as you take a bit while sitting in your humid NYC apartment…it just screams summer!
TOFU "CAPRESE" SANDWICH
1 small ciabatta
1 slice extra firm tofu, 1/2” thick
OR 1 slice of fresh mozzarella
2 slices fresh tomato
3-4 fresh basil leaves
fresh cracked salt and pepper
Slice your ciabatta in half. Drizzle the top and bottom with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Season lightly with fresh cracked salt and pepper.
Place the tofu (or mozzarella) on the bottom slice, top with the tomato slices.
The next layer is all basil. You can use the whole leaf or julienne the leaves.
