BBQ Tofu recipe
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
* 1 pound (tub) firm or extra firm tofu
* 1 jar of vegan BBQ sauce
This recipe is fast and easy to prepare. It is good sliced and added to veggies or put on vegan bread for lunches. It is a little spicey, so some kids may not like it.
Prehead the oven to 300. Slice the tofu the long way to make slabs. Cover the bottom of a jelly roll pan with 1/4 inch of sauce. Put the tofu on top. Cover the tofu with sauce. Just make sure the tofu is covered, you don’t have to drown it. Put it in the oven and cook for about 2 hours. If you like your tofu very firm, cook longer. Check every now and then to make sure nothing is burning. I’ve never had a problem with that, but but ovens are all different.
Preparation time: 2 hours
