Directions

Lay the tofu slices on a paper towel or clean dishtowel and press gently with another towel to absorb some of the water. Brush lightly with extra virgin olive oil and season on both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill pan over medium high heat.

Grill tofu on each side for 2-3 minutes, until nice grill lines appear.

Lay out 6 slices of bread on a cutting board. Drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper. Top 3 slices of bread each with 2 slices of tofu, 3 slices of cheese and divide the marinated artichokes evenly among the sandwiches. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with the remaining 3 pieces of bread. Slice in half to serve.
