Open-faced subs with crusty tofu and fresh homemade tomato sauce, topped with spinach. Perfect for weekend brunch, this is a healthy filling meal.
For the sauce:
If using fresh tomatoes, you can remove their skins by boiling them in water for 10-15 minutes. Then remove them from the water and remove the skins.
Dump tomatoes, garlic, oregano, rosemary, parsley, basil and around 1-1.5 cups water in a pot over medium-high heat. Let the sauce simmer for 15-20 minutes or until it thickens. After the sauce thickens put it in a blender and pulse until you get a fine paste. Put it back on heat. Add salt, black pepper, chili flakes, ketchup and cheese and let it cook for few more minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. Remove from heat and set it aside, with the lid on.
For the tofu:
In a bowl, stir the egg. On a plate, add breadcrumbs and seasoning and mix to combine.
Cut the tofu into half inch thick slices. I then cut the slices in half, into triangles. Dip the tofu slices, first in egg and then in bread crumbs and twist and turn the tofu to coat on all sides.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot add the tofu slices. Let them get crispy for 7-10 minutes and then flip. Repeat.
For the sandwich assembly:
Turn on the broiler. Cut the loaf of bread in half horizontally and lay it out on a broiler pan. Keep the cut side of bread up and coat it with sauce. Put tofu slices on top and add more sauce. Add fresh spinach leaves. Here if you want more cheese, you can top it up with cheese like Parmesan or mozzarella or any cheese of your choice. Place it in the preheated broiler oven for 4-5 minutes until bread gets crispy. Serve immediately.
Hope you enjoy these healthy subs.
Let me know how they turned out? What do you use your tofu for? Would love to know more tofu recipes.

The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Have 30 minutes? Then you can definitely make this crazy good recipe using everyday ingredients.
