If you’re cooking this in your oven, preheat it to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the tofu into thin slabs, about ¼” thick and place in a shallow dish.
Mix the tamari and apple cider together and pour the mixture over the tofu. Make sure the pieces are totally submerged. Allow the tofu to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together the nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic, powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
Dip a tofu slab into the nutritional mixture and make sure it’s fully coated. Place it on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the tofu.
Oven instructions: Bake the tofu for 20 minutes, flipping the slabs over after 10 minutes.
Air fryer instructions: Bake the tofu on 400° for 10 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the tofu in batches.
While the tofu is cooking, toast the English muffins.
To make the sandwiches, place a few slices of avocado and tomato on half of each muffin along with a leaf or two of lettuce. Place 3 or 4 slices of tofu on each muffin half, and then drizzle with the Cashew Cheese Sauce. Drizzle on some hot sauce, if using.
Top sandwich with the other half muffin half, and serve.
