  5. Add the lime juice, hot sauce and agave syrup and mix well.
  6. Chop the coriander or cilantro and add to the salsa. Season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. Slice the baguettes, lightly oil with olive oil and place on a grill or griddle to brown. When the baguettes are golden brown, remove from the grill.
  8. Place a generous amount of the avocado/kiwi salsa on each of the  the baguettes.
  9. Add a few pieces of spicy tofu.
  10. Serve the baguettes garnished with a few fresh sprouts on top.


An alternative for the spicy tofu could be some sort of vegan deli slices.
