PNC Park Serves Its 'Toasted Tofu' Sandwich on Gluten-Free Bread

From hot dogs and hamburgers, most stadium snacks go heavy on the meat, which is why it is so refreshing to see PNC Park now offering a Toasted Tofu sandwich.

This vegetarian-friendly ballpark snack is now served where the Pittsburgh Pirates play, offering a taste of tofu slices marinated in citrus-tamari flavors, served with sriracha mayo and sticky mint cabbage slaw between two slices of toasted, gluten-free bread.

As well as offering a source of plant-based protein, the Toasted Tofu stadium snack specifically appeals to those who cannot tolerate gluten. More and more, these kinds of free-from foods are becoming appealing to the mainstream as alternatives that are usually healthier than the classic fare that they are designed to replace.
