Sure to be a stampede favourite!
Well, as I wallow in the new turn in my life: NOT FINDING A PLACE IN CALGARY, I have been experimenting with some new yummy-in-the-tummy sandwiches.
I would like to make the daring postulation that if eaten by a steak loving stampeder there would be a carrel of folks screaming for more!
Enjoy these bad girls with a healthy helping of garlic-laced guacamole and veggies (carrots, celery and you know what is great with guac?? APPLE slices)

Ingredients for Sizzling Tofu Stampeded sandwiches
1 loaf of crusty vegan bread
2 zucchini (sliced length wise)
1-2 tomatoes (sliced)
green or red pepper (cored and sliced)
hummus or vegan dijon mustard
brick of extra firm tofu - cut the brick in half and then slice into 1 cm slices
olive oil, soya sauce, salt, pepper and ANY other spices that you dig (I did rosemary, basil, oregano)

Okay - so know you have all the goodies and you are ready to impress the mouths of many -

dredge tofu, veggies and bread (easy with the bread, and don't bother with the lettuce)
through the olive oil, soya sauce and spices.
Slam the whole lot on a bbque or a george foremanesque grill (or the frying pan!)
Grill/fry until the veggies/fu is the way you would like for sandwich munching (I decided to go crispy)
Grill the bread for about 1 minute until crispy, spread with the hummus or mustard (or BOTH if you are feeling special)
Pile everything onto the bread (now let the lettuce play) and close that puppy right up!
Now - you can opt out of the bread option by taking all of these yummy ingredients and making them into a fantastic salad - saving some of the grilling sauce as a dressing.....yes!!!! for multitasking!

Enjoy! and hey, if anyone has any space to share with the cutest little vegancowgirl this side of the latest Chinook then give me a yodel.

Watch out! If you don't enjoy one of these stampede delights there is no guarentee that this bull over here isn't going to throw you right off your feet.
