Spicy Tofu Breakfast Sandwich

Spicy Tofu Breakfast Sandwich

I’m always trying to find new ways of cooking Tofu and I will admit, most of the time it doesn’t even come close to meat… actually it never comes close to meat. What I can accomplish is making the stuff around Tofu taste incredible and spicy! I’m a huge fan of savoury breakfasts and this Spicy Tofu Breakfast Sandwich has become a new favourite of mine. Finally a breakfast without eggs! Oh and in regards to the amount of chipotle and chili powder I used in the cheese, I recommend using only 1/4 tbsp. I used about 1/2 tbsp. in mine by accident, and was surprised when it worked out. Though really it’s only because I’m a spice fiend! For those of you who don’t want a crazy amount of spice in the morning, just use the 1/4 tbsp.

As a side note, this sandwich goes great with my Ultimate Breakfast Smoothie.

Braids also goes great with this sandwich! Braids is a Canadian band from Montreal, with a Cocteau Twins influenced sound that gives me butterflies. Hopefully they will give you butterflies too!


  • 1 Slice of Multigrain Bread
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/3 Extra Firm Tofu
  • 1/2 cup Mozerella cheese
  • 1/4 Red Pepper
  • 1/4 tbsp. chipotle/ chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Spicy Tofu Breakfast Sandwich


  1. Turn Broiler on.
  2. On the stove heat a cast iron ridged griddle at medium heat. Cut extra firm tofu into half inch thick rectangles and place onto hot griddle, turn once tofu has grill marks.
  3. Pour olive oil into a flat cast iron skillet, turn heat on medium.
  4. Cut peppers and onions into long strips and toss into the flat cast iron skillet. Stir occasionally. Slice Avocado into wedges and put aside.
  5. Mix Mozzarella, chipotle and chili power with salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  6. Put a single piece of multigrain bread in a toaster. Toast to a very light brown.
  7. Remove peppers and onions from heat once they are hot and slightly wilted. Also remove tofu once both sides have grill marks. To assemble the sandwich place toast on one of the cast iron skillets and layer tofu, onions, peppers and avocado. Carefully place spicy cheese mix on top of the layers and put into the oven for 2-3 minutes. Keep a very close eye on the sandwich, broilers have different strengths, you don’t want your sandwich to burn!

P.S I recommend eating this sandwich with a knife and fork!
