Today’s sandwich is a Buffalo Tofu Sandwich with the main ingredients being: Tofu, Romaine Lettuce and Buffalo sauce.

Tofu

If you’re vegan this ingredient really needs no introduction. A favourite of many, tofu is a food made from soybean curds and was invented in China about 2000 years ago. Health benefits include reducing risk of heart disease and also reducing risk of breast/prostate cancer. It’s also a great source of iron, calcium, protein, manganese, selenium and phosphorous. It’s also gluten-free, so it’s a great addition to your diet if you’re gluten free.
