  • 1 Thick Slice Firm Tofu
  • 2 tsp. Olive Oil
  • ½ Avocado
  • Butter Lettuce
  • 1 Canyon Bakehouse Everything Bagel, toasted


Lime Aioli

  • ¼ C. Mayonnaise

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the lime aioli ingredients. Cover and chill for 20 minutes.
  2. In a small shallow dish, whisk together the dry rub ingredients.
