Barbecue-Flavored Tofu Nuggets

bbqtofuThis is so simple that it barely qualifies as a recipe! But it is invariably a huge hit, and makes believers out of tofu skeptics. It can be served as a simple protein dish on the dinner plate, or as a hot appetizer with cocktail toothpicks. Of course, if you use VegKitchen’s recipe for Quick Vegan Barbecue Sauce, this becomes more than a 3-ingredient recipe, but since I’ve never found a prepared BBQ sauce I’ve been too impressed with, I like to take the few extra moments to make my own.

Serves: 6 to 8 (or more as an appetizer)

  • Two 16-ounce tubs extra-firm tofu
  • 1 cup store-bought natural low-fat barbecue sauce,
    or Quick Vegan Barbecue Sauce, or more, as needed
  • Curly parsley for garnish

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the tofu 1/2-inch thick, and blot well between clean tea-towels or several layers of paper towel. Cut the slices into dice.

Stir together gently with the barbecue sauce in a mixing bowl, and transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet or roasting pan.

Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and bake for another 10 minutes. Arrange on attractive serving platter and garnish with parsley. Provide cocktail toothpicks for serving.

    I followed your recipe and made these for my family the other day and they loved it. I used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce and they tasted great! I’m going to cut bigger cubes of tofu and put them on a skewer next time. These were a total hit!
