BBQ Tofu Sandwiches

Because everything tastes good when slathered in BBQ sauce.

1 block Extra Firm tofu
2 Tbsp peanut oil (canola would be fine, too)
1 Tbsp soy sauce
BBQ sauce (I like Trader Joe's Kansas City Style, but whatever tickles your fancy)
Ciabatta rolls, sliced
Cole slaw
Pickles, sliced


Press tofu for at least 1 hour (flip after 30 minutes, if you can), then slice thinly. Mix peanut oil and soy sauce together and dredge each slice of tofu through it. Bake tofu at 350 for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Then pour on the BBQ sauce, making sure to coat both sides. Bake for another 15 minutes and then turn the broiler on for another 5, for good measure. Once the tofu is ready, slather the top bun with mayo, put a few tofu slices on each roll, top with pickles and cole slaw. Devour.

I served it with a quinoa salad (recipe to come) and sauteed kale.

  1. BBQ tofu is my favorite tofu dish! I use the EZ Tofu Press (available on Amazon) for pressing out the water on firm and extra firm tofu...this allows better flavor absorption and texture.
