  • 1 large avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste

    Heat 1cm of oil in the frying pan until the end of a wooden spoon bubbles when dipped in | Lay the slices of tofu in the oil and fry them for 2 minutes on each side | Take the slices of tofu out of the pan and put them on a plate lined with kitchen paper

    Cover the bottom of the ciabatta with egg free mayo | Lay out the slices of avocado | Season with salt and pepper | Sprinkle over the lettuce | Lay over the tomato slices | Top with the bacon | Cover with tomato ketchup | Put the lid on | Cut the sandwich into 4 and serve with crisps
