So simple and delicious!
This is certainly a comfort dish for when you are in need of the barbecue flavor without the flesh that is usually involved. On this particular night, we at our BBQ tofu with stuffing and mashed potatoes with gravy.
One block of firm or extra firm tofu will do. I like to slice mine in triangle slices. Do a diagonal slice across the tofu and then take each piece and slice about a 1/4 inch thick slices.
In a skillet heat up some vegetable oil for frying. While your oil is getting hot. Dice or chop half an onion. The onion does not have to be red, it’s just the only kind of onion I had on hand.
Put the chopped pieces in a oven safe pan.
Pour barbecue sauce over the onions.
Fry up your tofu.
Stick your fried tofu in the pan and immerse it in the sauce. Do this for all pieces and make sure each piece of tofu is covered.
The tofu should be swimming in sauce!
Cover and bake at 350 until the smell of barbecue permeates each layer of paint on the walls. About 30-40 minutes or so.
Ain’t it purty!
