Jenné Claiborne's Cajun Blackened Tofu Sandwich
My mom is the blackened-seasoning queen! She’s not a big fan of cooking, but she knows a few shortcuts to make a superquick meal taste good. Rule 1: use a flavorful spice blend. Blackened seasoning is a staple of Cajun cuisine and is most often used on fish. The technique entails pan-frying the spice- coated food, in this case tofu, until the spices char and create a crispy and flavorful coating. This recipe does require you to marinate the tofu overnight in a beer- based sauce, but that takes just a couple of minutes to throw together before you go to bed. Even my mom can appreciate this easy recipe! —Jenné ClaiborneFrom the Book: SWEET POTATO SOUL by Jenné Claiborne, Copyright © 2018 by Jenné Claiborne.
