Get started

  1. Mix all pickled veg ingredients in a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and leave for 1 hour before draining. Chop/grate any serving elements.
  2. Next prepare the Smokey Joe Bites. Mix all dry Smokey Joe seasoning ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in the agave and BBQ sauce.
  3. In a large tupperware container, add the torn Tofoo chunks and veg oil. Place the lid on and shake until the Tofoo is evenly covered.
  4. Add the Smokey Joe mix, place the lid back on and toss again so that all the torn Tofoo chunks are evenly coated.
  5. Place the Tofoo in your air fryer in a single row, so there is a little space around each piece. Set your air fryer to 210°C. Cook for 10-15 mins, shaking the basket halfway to turn the Tofoo.
  6. To assemble, lay out your baguette/ciabatta and spread each side with vegan mayo. Fill with pickled veg followed by cucumber spears and Smokey Joe juicy bites. Top with jalapenos, coriander and a drizzle of hot sauce before serving.
