Green "eggs" and "ham"

Yesterday was Dr.Seuss's birthday so Chris and I celebrated by recreating a vegan version of Green Eggs and Ham. This is basically a tofu sandwhich but this simple recipe makes a flavorful meal...Chris went back for seconds. :)

1 package extra firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/4" slices
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
3 Tbsp whole wheat flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
1-2 Tbsp canola oil
Vegan mayo
1 Avocado
Vegan cheese, such as Daiya cheddar flavor

Start by pressing the tofu to get the extra water out. I usually wrap mine in a kitchen towel and place something heavy on top for an hour or two. Make sure it is not to heavy to deform the tofu. 

Place the nutritional yeast, flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl and mix together. Cut the tofu into slices and coat each side with the flour mix. Heat a pan (we used the cast iron) with the oil and cook the tofu until it is crispy on both sides.

While the tofu is cooking spoon the avocado into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Spread the avocado on top of one slice of bread and the daiya on top of it. **Or you can melt the Daiya on the bread first. Place mayo on the other slice and the tofu patty on top of it. Combine slices into a sandwich. Enjoy!
