Tofu Sandwich Version 2.0

June 7, 2011

Remember when I tried this sandwich?


And you all thought I was crazy?  Well, maybe not all of you.

But I’d say a good majority. 

Well, you’re about to think I’m even crazier.

The only thing better than BBQ-seasoned tofu on a PB & J is BBQ-seasoned tofu on a cashew butter and jelly sandwich.  Oh yes, it’s true.  I went there, and my life will never be the same.

Which reminds me I’m out of bread.

Does anyone else think cashew butter has the weirdest texture?  When I squeezed it out I didn’t think it was going to spread easily, but surprisingly it did.  Very weird.

My life would be incomplete without the spreader.

I’ve come to an important realization in my life. 

Realization: Crunchy > creamy.  Why did it take me 21 years to figure this out?  I need me some crunch in my nut butter.

Even if that means having to be a little creative.

I hate my my bread has a hole!

When your sandwich is a little too high…

Just give it a good hand smashing.

That’s better.

Lately, I’ve been packing these to bring to work for lunch.

And hoping no one notices me and asks what kind of sandwich I’m eating…

I’ve been yoga-ing, cleaning, moving, and pool-ing today and I think I’m ready for a much needed shower!  Then off to a softball game. 

Ain’t nothing like summer 🙂

So tell me, would you give this sandwich a try or do you just think I’m crazy?

Creamy or crunchy?

Happy Tuesday day before WIAW!

    i have been dyingggg to try this combo with cashew butter! I just think (okay, know 😛 ) that the mild creaminess would go so wonderfully with the BBQ. And I kind of love that I’ve found someone else almost as obsessed as I am. People don’t know what they’re missing 😛
    Hey, simple answer for what you’re eating? “peanut butter and jelly.” there’s times when “bbq tofu sandwiched between cashew butter and blueberry jelly” is appropriate, and there’s times when it’s best to just go with “PB & J.” 😛

      Yes, it is totally the mild creamy factor that makes the cashew butter perfect in this sandwich! Let’s convert some more bloggers 🙂

    Hahaha, your bread just needs some air to breathe 🙂

    Haha Oh I’m loving all the crazy combo’s going around the blog world lately. I’m so, SO tempted to try the tofu, BBQ, and jam and I honestly can’t believe I haven’t yet. For someone who loves coming up with crazy combos, you’d think I’d be the first to jump at the newest craze. I’m ashamed of myself 😦

    But I would def. probably give this a try. And I love how you added the crunchy nuts 😉 I’m all for playing with varying textures… makes things a lot more interesting.

    I would definitely eat that! Make me one please!

    this post made me hungry!!!

    Nope… I don’t like tofu enough. But to each their own! Crunchy all the way.

    Oh maaan, I think I love cashew butter even more than peanut butter (and I ADORE peanut butter)… this might just tempt me into the bbq tofu brigade. And for the record, crunchy is always better than creamy! That’s not even a question…

      I’m not that crazy about cashew butter but for some reason I had a feeling it would be great on this sandwich.

  8. June 8, 2011 9:07 AM

    I think you’re crazy but I’d still like to try your sandwich 😉
    I am soooo jealous of your summer! Yoga-ing, pool-ing and now softball game-ing??? Are you sure you don’t wanna work a couple night shifts for me?

      If it makes you feel any better I got a wicked sunburn and am currently regretting the pooling I did yesterday.

    I’m glad you found my site! That sandwich looks AMAZING. I think I need to give tofu another try 🙂

    • June 8, 2011 10:13 PM

      Yes you do! The texture can be really unappealing I think but if you cook it right, it can be delicious. Don’t be intimidated!

    i’m afraid of tofu only slightly. i have cooked with it in banana bread though and lasagna for a vegan recipe!

    this almost reminds me of a brie and jelly sammy!

  11. June 8, 2011 1:21 PM

    Heck no you’re not crazy! I at times eat whay others will consider to be a weird combination. I have to tell you, try making homemade bbq sauce with jelly in it….amazing! Maybe that is why this combination is not so weird to me?
