Easiness: **
Greenness: Vegan

This recipe is inspired by Nil, a Sudanese Restaurant in Berlin. They specialize in Tamiya (a sudanese kind of falafel), halloumi (fried cheese), and now tofu! These sandwiches are easy to make for a quick vegetarian lunch or snack.

Ingredients:
1 pita bread
1/2 package tofu cut into 1/4″ strips
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1 tomato sliced
Pepper or pepper corn
a pinch of Curry Powder (can be omitted)
Peanut sauce or tahini optional but recommended for flavor. You can also use a bit of spicy sauce or other middle eastern sauce of your choosing.
1 tbsp oil

Directions:
Sprinkle the tofu with pepper and curry powder. Fry on either side until slightly brown around the edges.
Slice the pita bread in half. If you have peanut sauce, spread the inside of the pita sauce with as much as you desire. Open the pita bread and stuff (equally distributing) lettuce, tomatoes, and fried tofu. Enjoy!
