Tofu and Olive Sandwich Recipe

See the Herb Butter Recipe used in this sandwich here: Herb Butter Recipe.


2 pounds tofu
1 1/2 tsp. basil
1 1/2 tsp. crushed rosemary
1 1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 tbsp. soy sauce or Dr. Bronner's Bouillon (or to taste)
2 tbsp. primary yeast flakes
1/2 tsp. minced garlic or garlic powder
2 tbsp. safflower oil mayonnaise
1/4 cup minced onion
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/3 cup salad olives
Sliced bread
Herb Butter
Alfalfa sprouts


Crumble the tofu and combine with the other ingredients in a large bowl.  Assemble the same way the "eggless egg" sandwich are. (See the Herb Garden Cafe eggless Tofu Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe for sandwich assembly tips.) Only — for tofu and olives — Deborah and Paul recommend rye bread, which you can toast or not (according to your preference).
