Context: I am in the middle of an intensive dance course at the moment and trying to make sure I get as much protein as possible.

This week I am planning on taking sandwiches again (last week was mostly peanut butter and jam, which was nice but got a bit boring after a couple of days) and have a tin of braised tofu, which I love but have never made into sandwiches before.

Please can you suggest some ideas of what to make with it? I really strongly dislike mayonnaise so non-mayo ideas are extra welcome!

Tofu? Braised? In a tin? What is this wizardry?

I'm not sure what it is but if I had a tin of it I'd try making *banh mi* with it and I'd be optimistic about the results. (Probably with avocado in stead of mayo, if I hated mayo.) I feel that if a question has to do with sandwiches, the answer is usually *banh mi*.

Or maybe I'd mince it up and add some Chinese five-spice and hoisin and do lettuce wraps. Or, like, lettuce wrap sandwiches. With lettuce and tofu wrapped up and then put between slices of bread.

If I had the power to heat things during the day, I might try getting crazy with some barbecue sauce and doing a pulled-tofu kind of a thing. Or sauté it with mushrooms and onions and peppers and melt non-dairy cheese on it for a cheesesteak analogue.

Would it be good in a burrito?

I love tofu sandwiches with mustard, tomato, sprouts, pickles and avocado. Now I want sandwiches!

Braised is pretty general.....what's the flavor like? I mean, can you taste cumin? ginger? That'll help what to put it with.

I saw this in a braised tofu description ( I had no idea what this was either)

"For the exciting taste of the sea, try it mashed with flaked toasted Nori, lemon juice, chopped spring onions and sea salt."

I don't know about 'exciting' but it sounds like a possibly tasty sandwich filling idea.

This is the kind of tofu I mean:

The ingredients are: Dried Soyabean Curd (85%), Water, Safflower Oil, Soyabean Extract, Millet Extract, Sea Salt. I don't think that's very flavoured at all :)

Tonight I made a tortilla wrap with braised tofu fried in some hoisin sauce with cucumber and spring onion, which was lovely.
