- 4 ounces button mushrooms
- 2 to 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 ounces white onion, thinly sliced
- Hot sauce such as Crystal, to coat onion
- Canola oil, for frying

- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon Cajun spice mix
- 1 block tofu, cut lengthwise into 4 slices

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
For the remoulade: Combine the oil, capers, hot sauce, lemon juice, mustard, paprika, tofu and red onion in a food processor and process until smooth. Add water to thin out as needed. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate. Yields about 2 cups of remoulade.
For the to'boy: Combine the collard greens, beer and cider vinegar in a large, high-sided skillet or Dutch oven. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chile flakes. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover and transfer to the oven. Braise until tender, about 30 minutes.
Toss the mushrooms in a bowl with the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and olive oil. Roast the mushrooms on a baking sheet until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the white onions and just enough hot sauce to soak them. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep-sided skillet to 350 degrees F.
Mix the cornmeal, flour and Cajun spice mix in a bowl. Dredge the tofu slices in the cornmeal mixture and fry them until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Split the rolls and spread remoulade on both sides. Layer with tomato slices, soaked onions, collards, mushrooms and fried tofu. Then enjoy tout suite!
