350g block firm tofu, pressed and then cut into thin squares
Oil spray or a drizzle of oil
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sriracha (or to taste)
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp water

Spinach, sliced red pepper and bread, to serve

1. After pressing and slicing your tofu, heat a non-stick pan over high heat. Spray or drizzle with oil and then add the tofu pieces in a single layer (I had to place some up the sides to fit them all in). Cook for 3-5 minutes before flipping and repeating for the other side. The pieces should be golden and just starting to crisp up.
2. Meanwhile, mix together the liquid smoke, soy sauce, sriracha, maple syrup and water.
3. When the tofu is golden and starting to appear crisp, reduce heat to medium-low and pour the marinade mix over your tofu. Shake the pan to coat all tofu pieces and then cook for a further 5-10 minutes, turning regularly, until the marinade is absorbed and the tofu browned.
4. Create your sandwich with tofu pieces, spinach, pepper and any other desired ingredients.
