Tofu Green Chutney Sandwich
Hi friends! If you’re in the mood for some fast food but prefer not to buy from outside, give this homemade Tofu Green Chutney Sandwich a try. Super easy to prepare (comes together in just 15 minutes) and tastes AMAZING!
The star of this sandwich is the zesty green chutney, which is made from fresh cilantro, mint leaves, roasted chickpea flour, and a blend of spices. It gives the sandwich a satisfying kick that will leave your taste buds dancing.
Next, we fry the tofu slices with oil, salt, and pepper until they are golden brown. We then layer these slices on toasted bread slathered with vegan mayo and green chutney. We add some lettuce, tomato, and onion for crunch and freshness, creating a sandwich that is both filling and flavorful.
The great thing about this recipe is its versatility. You can easily swap out the tofu for your favorite protein (like mashed beans), or even mushrooms. And if mayo is not your thing, replace it with hummus.
Let’s go! 🙂
