This is tofu? Bean curd is bland no more in these flavorful dishes

Charles Phan’s Out the Door in San Francisco serves a non-traditional fried tofu banh mi with grilled zucchini and avocado. Andrea Nguyen, a cookbook author and cooking teacher based in Northern California, likes to change it up by marinating and grilling a slab of tofu and sliding it into a ciabatta roll along with the vegetables and bacon. Sriracha and a drizzle of the ginger-soy marinade add even more complex flavor.
