Fire Escape Baked Tofu Sandwich

This sandwich is so hot it'll have you running for the fire escape. It's easy and will provide you with lots of protein-energy and joy. I like to cut the tofu into giant slabs, but you can slice it as you like. Topping recommendations? Roasted garlic, avocado, spinach, red peppers - just use what you've got in your kitchen. We topped the sandwich with hummus, arugula, tomatoes, and sauteed mushrooms and onions. Happy double-post day! Enjoy this one, ladies and gents.

Baked Tofu
3 cloves garlic (finely minced)
2 cm. ginger (finely minced)
1/3 c. soy sauce
juice of 1 lime
1 Tbs. sesame oil or olive oil
lots of freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. extra-firm tofu (sliced)

Mix your marinade ingredients together and lay the tofu slabs in the dish. Let the slabs marinate for an hour or so, flipping once or twice. If you're in a crunch, just let the slabs marinate for 10m or so. Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes, flipping once.
Top some toasted bread with your favorite toppings and voila!
