Using kitchen scissors, carefully open the tofu package. Drain the liquid. Place the tofu between 2 plates. Weight the top plate with a heavy jar for 20 minutes. Remove the tofu from the plates, draining and discarding the liquid.
Stir together the marinade ingredients. Place the sliced tofu in the marinade.
Marinate the tofu for at least a half an hour and up to four hours. The longer you marinate, the more flavor you will have.
Turn the tofu occasionally, spooning the marinade on the slices.
In a non-stick pan fry the tofu, on both sides, on medium-high until the tofu is caramelized. Set aside.
Mix the sandwich sauce ingredients and set-aside.
Assemble the sandwich. Spread the sandwich sauce on two pieces of bread. Place slices of tomato and avocado, a few lettuce leaves, a sprinkle of chives, and a couple of slices of the cooked, marinated tofu on the bread.
Repeat the steps until you have 3 sandwiches. Enjoy!
