Preparation / Directions:
Be sure to use the firm, Chinese-style tofu rather than the soft or regular tofu. It tastes best after it has been marinated for several days.
PREPARE A FIRE if you are grilling the tofu, and grill it on both sides, about 6 inches above the coals, until it is well-browned and a little crispy. Otherwise, grill the tofu on both sides.
Spread the bread with mayonnaise and horseradish to taste. Slice the tofu in half, crosswise, to make pieces 1/2-inch thick, and cut the pieces to fit the bread.
Arrange the tomato slices on the tofu, and salt and pepper them; add the onion if you wish.
Cover with the lettuce and the top piece of bread.
