This was so simple, it's almost not worth having a post on at all, but I think sometimes going back to the basics of a meal is good. So often I serve one-dish meals, or meals that only require an extra veggie. This BBQ'd tofu needs a little more to make it part of a whole dinner ensemble A note, too, on portion. A block of tofu should feed 4 people. The delicious BBQ'd tofu chunks shouldn't take up most of the plate. You have to fill it with other things. So I made some green beans as well as my Black Bean Quinoa Salad and had a green salad just in case. We were fine. But I did make it stretch to feed one hungry man, two hungry boys, and one momma.
Also, next time, I think I'm going to broil the tofu instead of pan frying it. That's just how we prefer it -- totally a texture thing, I think. It's also a lot faster to broil it than pan-fry it. Also, no oil is needed when you broil. Bonus!
Ok. Enough of all that.
- 1 block extra firm tofu. Pressed/squeezed for at least 30 minutes and cut into 36 squares. Or less, depending on how big you want them.
- garlic power
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce. We use Stubb's Honey Pecan. Love Stubb's!
-- Once fried or broiled, mix in a bowl with the BBQ sauce and serve right away! (More BBQ may be needed depending on the amount of BBQ love you have going on at your table!)
