Ingredients

  • 1 block firm or extra firm tofu
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Cup BBQ sauce (check ingredients for no honey or animal products)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Instructions

  • Heat oven at 420 degrees
  • Take tofu out of package and press for 15 minutes - don't skip this, it will make the tofu crispier. If you don't have a tofu press, wrap in a towel, and put heavy pans or books on top.
  • Dice tofu up into 1" cubes
  • In a large bowl mix 1 TBL of oil with 1 TBL of soy sauce
  • Throw tofu in the bowl and gently toss to cover each tofu piece
  • Sprinkle on 3 TBL of corn starch and gently toss until most of the corn starch absorbs into the tofu and you don't see it as much
  • Place tofu on a lined baking sheet, making sure the pieces are spaced out and not touching
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until tofu looks golden brown and crispy
  • Take tofu out of the oven and put in a saute pan on medium low heat.
  • Add ½-1 cup of BBQ sauce and make sure each tofu piece is well coated.
  • Add 1tsp of maple syrup and 1 tsp of soy sauce
  • Simmer on medium low heat for 1-2 minutes or until the BBQ sauce starts to caramelize
  • Remove from heat and serve on a salad, in a wrap or on the side with a baked potato and vegetables
