Ingredients

For the coronation tofu salad:

  • 200 g (~ 7 oz) firm tofu, drained
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • Few sprigs fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp raisins or sultanas
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise (or vegan mayonnaise)
  • 1/2 tsp mild curry powder
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

To assemble:

  • 4 slices bread
  • Small handful salad leaves
  • 1 large tomato, sliced

Instructions

  • Grate the block of tofu using the large holes on a standard cheese grater. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan, and add the grated tofu. Cook over a medium heat for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly. You don't want the tofu to become overly browned or crispy, just to firm up and turn a light golden colour. When cooked, set aside to cool.
  • Add the cooled tofu to a bowl, along with the remaining coronation tofu ingredients. Mix well to combine. The tofu salad will keep well in the fridge for 3 days.
  • When ready, assemble the sandwiches with salad leaves and slices of tomato, topped with the coronation tofu.
