For the Chipotle Baked Tofu
  • 1 14 ounce package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce, from a can of chipotle peppers
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
For the Pineapple Guacamole
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups finely chopped pineapple
  • salt to taste
For the Sandwiches
  • 4 6 inch sandwich rolls, sliced open
  • lettuce and/or sprouts
Make the Chipotle Baked Tofu:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the block of tofu in half, width-wise, then slice each half into 8 rectangular slabs. Stir the maple syrup, adobo sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, cumin and smoked paprika together in a small bowl.
  3. Brush both sides of each piece of tofu with the adobo mixture, and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, then gently flip the pieces and brush with some additional sauce. (You should still have jut a bit of sauce left - hang on to it.) Bake 20 minutes more, until the sauce is dried and the tofu pieces have shrunk a bit and dried out.
Make the Pineapple Guacamole
  1. While the tofu bakes, place the avocado into a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Stir in the cilantro, lime juice, tomato, red onion, garlic and pineapple. Season with salt to taste.
Make the Sandwiches
  1. Stuff the rolls with the chipotle baked tofu slices, then top with any remaining sauce, pineapple guacamole and sprouts or lettuce. Serve.
Recipe Notes

For extra-spicy chipotle baked tofu, increase the amount of adobo sauce. Taste-test the sauce and use your judgement. The leftover adobo sauce and chipotle peppers can be frozen for later use.
