BBQ Tofu

I feel like I haven’t been getting nearly enough protein lately. I eat primarily beans, nuts and yogurt with the occasional tempeh but recently I’ve been ravenous after my meals. Meat analogs aren’t really my thing but I decided to give tofu another try. I usually cook it in a masala or crumbled it into ricotta form. Searing and dousing in BBQ sauce isn’t so bad either.

This is an amazingly easy recipe, especially if the BBQ sauce is already made. You can also broil or grill the tofu. The longer the tofu sits in any sauce/marinade, the more flavorful it will taste!

I can’t really speak for the attractiveness of tofu in any form.

BBQ Tofu

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 6 oz tofu, pressed
  • 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (I use Annie’s Original. I recommend Smitten Kitchen‘s recipe for homemade)
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and the garlic.
  2. When the garlic begins to sizzle, add the tofu in an even layer. Sear each side for 3-4 minutes, until golden and slightly crispy.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the BBQ sauce until the tofu is completely coated. Serve with a hearty grain and veggie, if preferred.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life.
