BBQ Tofu

Published by on

This is one of those simple “no recipe” recipes. I had some tofu in the refrigerator that I needed to use up, but I wasn’t in the mood for a stir fry. Since everything tastes better with BBQ sauce, I thought, why not smother my tofu with BBQ? Turns out, it’s pretty tasty.

The steps are quite simple.

Drain your tofu for about 20-30 minutes.

Slice the tofu into 32 pieces and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Flip tofu over and bake an additional 20 minutes.

Baste your tofu with your favorite BBQ sauce. Bake an additional five minutes.

And eat!
