‘Fus and don’ts

I will never tire of puns.  Ever.  As long as I’m the one saying them, that is.  I don’t have the same policy when it comes to my dad’s or Kyle’s. 

Last month I made baked BBQ tofu and promised you all the recipe.  Then I ate it all, took no photos, and realized I suck.  Blogger fail.

No worries, I made it again.  And it was just as good this time.  Here’s what I used:

  • 1/2 block pressed tofu (I used the other half for I don’t remember what)
  • 3 tbsp. of BBQ sauce (whatever your favorite brand is)
  • 1 tsp. of honey mustard (Dijon works if you want it on the spicier side)
  • 1 tbsp. Bragg’s liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 tsp. lime juice
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

First, add BBQ sauce to the pressed tofu and rub it down so the sauce is coating the ‘fu.  I am lazy and used the Nasoya container, but I’d recommend using a tupperware that seals so it can marinate in the fridge.

Next mix the rest of the ingreds together on the side and then dump on top.  [Just as as FYI, I’m sure using BBQ sauce alone will still turn out delicious, but I prefer to amp it up with some extras]

This is the tofu after bathing in the sauce bath.  Then I added it all to a tupperware, to soak up the flavors overnight.

Here it is the next day…like a sponge, the tofu absorbed the sauce.

Added to a sprayed baking sheet, baked at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Sizzle.

Now what to do with it?

I was in a wrap kind of mood.  So I pulled out the last Ezekiel sprouted tortilla and scrounged through the fridge for filler ingreds.  I came up with hummus, sprouts, and bell peppers.

This is the only decent picture because it immediately fell apart. 

Note: Ezekiel tortillas are not meant to hold a wrap together.  Seriously, this is the second time I’ve attempted it, and it ended just as bad as the first.  They are hard and crack and basically have NOTHING on Alvarado Street’s sprouted tortillas (which WF’s has been awful at keeping in stock). 

On the plus side, the tofu was delicious.  I also love it when sprouts and hummus are together in a dish. 

To summarize, DO use this BBQ recipe for a yummy tofu dish.  DO NOT use these tortillas though. 

For another great BBQ tofu recipe, try BBQ tofu and quinoa.

    Yum! I love BBQ tofu. Great idea with the additional ingredients to amp it up! :) I will have to try it.

  2. Lenna

    Thank for the recipe! I love tofu and always seek for new recipes :) And it sounds like a good combination with tortilla, hummus and such.

  3. Jess@HealthyExposures

    This looks awesome – and I like the fact that you amped it up with extras, even if it could have been done with just BBQ. I feel like I’m always thinking “but what ELSE can I add?!” when I make things! haha.

    Aaaand thank you for the heads-up on those wraps/tortillas. Won’t be trying those anytime soon.

    Ezekiel tortillas make for terrible wraps, but really good “pizza” crusts. Looks delicious!

  5. Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health

    Awesome recipe! I need to start buying tofu :)

  6. Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFiles

    Mmm I bet these would be great in a wrap with some guacamole! Definitely on my “to try” list.

    And almost as much as I enjoy your puns, I enjoy your abbreviations (abbrevs, as my darling sister says)!

    I’ve been wanting to do a bbq tempeh dish and I might just sub the tempeh for the tofu and steal your idea :)
    I’ve never made tempeh before and only had one experience with tofu so far but it was amazingly good. I think I just said tempeh and tofu more times in the last 30 seconds than in my whole life.
    Oh and, tempeh and tofu.

    hahaha…tempeh tempeh tempeh, tofu tofu tofu…

    let me know how the tempeh turns out though!

    pizza crusts huh? hmmm…intrigued.

  12. Katherina @ Zephyr Runs

    This looks almost more healthy than I can handle! Sprouted wrap? Hummus and sprouts? :) The BBQ tofu will pull me in and the healthy sprouts will make me wanna make it!

  13. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    that fu looks sooooo goooooood!

    and i love that you used the nasoya container and saved on dishes!

    and thank you…so much…for your emails. means the world.

    Yum! I make a very similar recipe with buffalo sauce!

  15. Danielle

    Love me some tofu! I always make the same marinade for tofu; soy sauce, honey, garlic and cayenne powder. Nice and simple. Unfortunately it’s very hard to find BBQ sauce in Holland, otherwise I’d like to try this recipe!

    totally agree about ezekiel sprouts! I have to be so gentle with them or they completely disintegrate. I’ve worked out a method of carefully wrapping my wraps in tin foil to take to work (I should use something recyclable but this is the only thing that’s worked! they should invent tupperware for this purpose). they are good, though, if you’re okay with messy food :)

    that tofu looks delish!

    tin foil technique sounds good!
