Ingredients

Vegan Remoulade:
  • 1/4 cup blended oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers 
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce such as Crystal
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1 tablespoon mustard 
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 package silken tofu 
  • 1/4 red onion 
  • Salt and pepper
To' Boy:
  • 1 bunch collard greens, stemmed, leaves cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup beer 
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 
  • Red chile flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 ounces button mushrooms 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 4 ounces white onion, thinly sliced 
  • Hot sauce such as Crystal, to coat onion 
  • Canola oil, for frying 
  • 1 cup cornmeal 
  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun spice mix 
  • 1 block tofu, cut lengthwise into 4 slices
  • 2 short French rolls 
  • 1 tomato, cut into thin half-moon slices 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the remoulade: Combine the oil, capers, hot sauce, lemon juice, mustard, paprika, tofu and red onion in a food processor and process until smooth. Add water to thin out as needed. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate. Yields about 2 cups of remoulade.

For the to'boy: Combine the collard greens, beer and cider vinegar in a large, high-sided skillet or Dutch oven. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chile flakes. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover and transfer to the oven. Braise until tender, about 30 minutes.

Toss the mushrooms in a bowl with the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and olive oil. Roast the mushrooms on a baking sheet until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the white onions and just enough hot sauce to soak them. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep-sided skillet to 350 degrees F.

Mix the cornmeal, flour and Cajun spice mix in a bowl. Dredge the tofu slices in the cornmeal mixture and fry them until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Split the rolls and spread remoulade on both sides. Layer with tomato slices, soaked onions, collards, mushrooms and fried tofu. Then enjoy tout suite!
