Crispy Fried Tofu Sandwiches

A fried chicken sandwich is one of those things I had written off as a meal I will never consume again. I used to love the crispy/zesty taste of a fast-food chicken sandwich (guilty as charged!!) but figured it would be impossible to make a vegan version, and even if I tried, it would be…

It was a summer’s evening and we ate on our balcony, so these photos show my plate al fresco! It takes a little forethought since your polenta has to be room temperature…
