Quick and Tasty Tofu Sandwich

Adapted from This Can't Be Tofu! by Deborah Madison

1/2 block firm tofu, drained
3 Tablespoons vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 onion, sliced
1 large portabello, sliced
Toasted bread

Slice the tofu crosswise into 4 slices and place them on a towel and dry. Heat your nonstick pan (you can add a bit of spray oil if you desire) over med-hi heat. Add tofu and cook until golden on each side. Pour the Worcestershire sauce over the tofu and turn one time. Keep frying it until the sauce is absorbed into the tofu. Take of heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. While you are cooking the tofu, saute your onions and mushrooms in a bit of water until they are nice and golden brown. Spread vegenaise over your toasted bread, add two tofu slices and top with the onions and mushrooms and add a piece of cool, crisp lettuce. A tomato would be great too. This took me about 15 minutes to make this whole sandwich. It's yummy, easy, and fast! Makes 2 sandwiches.
