Sweet-and-sticky baked BBQ tofu is perfect parked next to your favorite green veggie on top of a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes.
Guys, I’m taking a break from air frying all of the food to share the Baked BBQ Tofu recipe that I developed for my partners at EZ Tofu Press. I love working with this company, and their press does an awesome job of pressing the excess water out of your tofu quickly and evenly. Getting the water out makes your tofu more firm and more able to take up the sauces or marinades you are using.
This recipe is one of Darrol’s and my favorite ways to make tofu. It’s twice-baked, making it toothsome and chewy, and it’s covered in sweet, sticky BBQ sauce. There are lots of ways you can serve this up, and here are some suggestions for you!
- over mashed potatoes with a side of steamed broccoli, as shown
- over mashed cauliflower with a side of Ginger-Sesame Kale
- over rice and beans (or just rice) with Frizzled Green Beans Almondine on the side
…You get the idea. Choose a starch, choose a veg, and pile it all onto a plate together.
You can use any BBQ sauce that you like to make your baked BBQ tofu. Choose your favorite sauce from a jar, make my homemade BBQ sauce – this recipe is super versatile!
About the EZ Tofu Press
Pressing your tofu is mission critical in this recipe. Pressing out the excess water gives your tofu that dense, chewy mouthfeel that you’re looking for, and the EZ Tofu Press does a really great job pressing tofu quickly and evenly.
Last year, I shot a little promotional video with the EZ Tofu Press folks, and they released it late last month. It shows you how to press your tofu and how much water you’re getting out of the block by pressing.
The BBQ tofu recipe below is actually the one you see shots of in the video. There are also some shots of Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu, and I’m going to be sharing that recipe with you guys later on this month.
