Easy BBQ Tofu

This is so simple. Just pan fry pressed tofu until crispy and then coat it in your favourite BBQ sauce.

By the way, BBQ tofu is also great served in a sandwich or wrap.

Yield: about 3 servings


1 package organic firm tofu
1 tbsp high heat safe oil (coconut oil)
Herbamare/sea salt and pepper, for seasoning
Garlic powder, for seasoning
1/4 cup of your favourite BBQ sauce, plus more for serving if desired.

1. Press tofu for at least 30-45 minutes.

2. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat. Slice tofu into about 32 rectangles (or as many as you desire).

3. Add 1 tbsp of oil to the skillet and then carefully add the tofu. Be careful as the oil can splatter. Spread tofu out into a single layer, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and fry for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat. (Tediously) flip each piece of tofu (a couple forks works for me) and fry for another 5-6 minutes, or until golden all over and charred in some spots. I like to cook it until it’s nice and crisp.

4. Remove from heat and stir in the BBQ sauce to coat the tofu. Serve immediately with more sauce on the side if desired.
