Vegetarian po’boy made with crispy tofu instead of fried shrimp, with all the Cajun spices. Pair it with tomato, lettuce, pickles, mayo and spicy mustard to make the perfect Southern-inspired sandwich.
Remove extra firm tofu from packaging and press dry with paper bowls. Cut into 1-inch cubes.
Set a skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat.
In small bowl, combine all spices with cornmeal. Toss tofu in cornmeal mixture and carefully place in skillet. Sear tofu on each side for 1 - 2 minutes, or until at least 2 - 3 sides are golden and crisped. Drain on paper towels. Spread mayo and spicy mustard on insides of sandwich rolls. Add sliced tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and crispy tofu.
