BBQ Tofu:

  • 1 servings of extra or super firm tofu
  • 1- 2 tbsp vegan BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil


Slice tofu into slices (about 1/4 inch or 0.5 cm thick), lay them between 2 cutting boards and a clean kitchen or paper towel, put a heavy object on top and press for about 10 minutes to remove excess liquid.

Heat up oil in a non stick pan (medium heat) and fry tofu slices for about 5 minutes on each side until browned and crispy.

Lower heat and pour BBQ sauce over the tofu to glaze the slices and cook them an additional minute each side.

Tweaks to the original recipe:

  • Steamed not boiled sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp BBQ added to the sauce
  • 1/2 block of tofu instead of white beans
