Simple Roasted Barbeque Tofu
Servings: 4
  • 1 block of firm tofu
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  1. Start by pressing the tofu. You can do this by lining a plate with paper towels, and putting your tofu on the paper towels
  2. Then add another layer of paper towels on top of the tofu, and press with something heavy (ie: canned beans, tomato sauce jars, etc)
  3. Let it press for at least 1 hour
  4. Now let's make our simple BBQ sauce. Add the rest of the ingredients to a small sauce pan, and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside
  5. Once the tofu is pressed, slice it into 5-6 large rectangles
  6. Add the tofu slices to a bowl, and pour the barbecue sauce in
  7. Gently coat each tofu slice with a spoon, and let this marinate for at least an hour
  8. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and add each tofu slice (do not discard the extra barbecue sauce!)

  9. Bake for for 20 minutes. flip over, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the tofu edges are browned
  10. Brush the remaining barbecue sauce onto the tofu and serve with on a salad bowl, with your favorite grains, or in a sandwich!
