BBQ Tofu Recipe

BBQ Tofu Recipe

You need to start off with some good tofu. Don't get the kind at your regular grocery store as, often, it's too soft.

Okay, so slice your block of tofu into 1/2/-3/4" slabs--you'll get 5-6, depending on the size of your tofu cake.

Grab yourself another cutting board or baking pan and a kitchen towel and fold it in thirds. Put two paper towels down, one side on top of the kitchen towel. Arrange the pressed tofu along the length of it. Fold the paper towel back over the tofu, then the fold the kitchen towel back onto it.

Put the other cutting board on top of the towel, and load it up with something heavy. I used canned food.

Let this press for at least 15 minutes, or up to a couple of hours.

Prepare the marinade.

4 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (can be crunchy or smooth)
vegetable stock
black pepper

Whisk all these ingredients together, using enough veggie stock to make a nice consistency good enough for covering the tofu. I'd say about 1/4 cup--don't use too much more.

After the tofu has pressed, fold back the towels, then flip it out onto the cutting board.

Cut the tofu slabs into finger-sizes.

Pour half the marinade into a container. Place the tofu into it, and pour more marinade over it, fitting the pieces in as best you can.

Marinate overnight.

Prepare the pan with non-stick cooking spray or spread olive oil with brush or your fingers. Set aside.

Turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Pull the tofu out of the marinade and arrange onto the cooking pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until bottom is golden. Turn over. Bake 20 minutes more.

Prepare sauce.
1/2 cup of your favorite bbq sauce
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp mustard
Garlic Salt

Mix together and brush the tofu after it's baked.

Turn them over and brush again. Bake for 5 minutes more.

Here they are! ( mine are a bit overcooked because I was stitchin at the same time!!!
