You may have noticed a new badge in the right sidebar. Thanks to the Monday Campaigns for inviting me to be a Meatless Monday Featured Blogger! Going meat-free for a few meals a week totally help boost your health and better the planet.
For some meatless meals this week, I made a super simple batch of barbecue marinated tofu. I did a ton of walking on Sunday to and from Union Square for the Eat Boutique pop-up shop at Fringe Union. I went home with the BBQ sauce made by We Love Jam. Fresh, complex, delicious, and gluten free!
I decided to mix up my tofu butchery and do triangles instead of cubes. I’m just crazy like that. I served the BBQ tofu over rice for a quick dinner, and on top of a quinoa & romaine salad for lunch.
BBQ Marinated Baked Tofu
- 1 package extra-firm tofu
- 1 cup favorite BBQ sauce
Drain the tofu and wrap in a paper towel to soak up the extra water. Let sit for at least 5 minutes.
Cut the block of tofu into cubes, triangles, strips, or planks. Add to a zip top bag and mix with the BBQ sauce. Let marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil (like with a Misto) to prevent sticking. Arrange your tofu in one layer. Bake for about 30 minutes.
