Baked tofu sandwiches with Asian flavors! These scrumptious sammies are stuffed with smoky baked tofu, crisp veggies, and slathered in kicky wasabi mayo. Packed with flavor and great for meal prep!
Whisk the soy sauce, vinegar, maple syrup, sesame oil, liquid smoke, ginger, and garlic together in a small bowl.
Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slabs and place it in a shallow dish. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the tofu.
Allow the tofu to marinate for at least 30 minutes, turning once or twice to recoat all surfaces.
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the tofu slices on it.
Bake the tofu for 40 minutes, gently turning once about halfway through cooking, until it darkens and shrinks up a bit. You can also brush it with any excess marinade when you turn it.
While the tofu bakes, place the cashews into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade and blend them to a thick paste, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
Add the lemon juice, wasabi, and salt, then blend again. Thin with as much milk as needed, and blend once more until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Slather one side of each bread slice with the wasabi cashew mayo, then pair up the bread slices stuff with the baked tofu, spinach, cucumber slices, and scallions. Drizzle the veggies with rice vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
