For a quick and delicious lunch, there is nothing better than a satisfying sub sandwich. While usually the fillings include deli meats like ham or turkey, you can always adjust your sandwich to include some meatless alternatives like soy, lentils or portobello mushrooms. With the right seasonings, you won’t even miss the meat.
In this Tofu Parmesan Subs recipe from Food Network Magazine, the traditional Italian dish chicken Parmesan gets a vegetarian makeover with tofu, which is stuffed between two slices of crusty Italian bread. The tofu is coated in eggs and covered in a breadcrumb-and-cheese coating, with a pinch of Italian seasoning for flavor. Melted, nutty Parmesan and a tomato sauce made with basil and garlic cover the bread, and a piece of wilted spinach cooked in olive oil packs in a nutritional punch. The result? A filling lunchtime staple.

Hot Tips for Healthy Cooking From Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:
Don’t overlook tofu because you think it’s bland. If you marinate it before cooking, it will turn out super flavorful. Slice firm tofu and drizzle it with your favorite marinade (try the orange juice-onion mixture in Food Network Magazine‘s Tofu Cuban Sandwiches With Jicama Sticks); soak for at least 5 minutes, then sear or bake.

NPR quizzed Paula Deen on tofu a few weeks ago, and if you haven’t heard the segment yet….you should. When the Butter Queen was a guest on NPR’s quiz show, “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!“, she played the “Not My Job” quiz. And if anything is not Paula’s job….it’s tofu.
When you have 11 minutes and 2 seconds to spare, take a listen to the entire interview and quiz here. But if you can’t find the time, here’s a cheat sheet of my favorite moments to fast forward to:
