Barbecued Tofu

This is another recipe which is mostly my wifes idea. She used to do something similar with chicken, and wanted to try it with tofu. Although the prep is quick on this one, it does take a while to bake. It makes very good leftovers for lunch though. To make good tofu, it is imperative to press it.

  1. Press the tofu. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Cut the tofu into cubes, place the cubed tofu into a baking dish, and cover with the oil and barbecue sauce. Bake, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, and the tofu is beginning to brown slightly, usually about 30 minutes. Add the celery, onions, and peppers, and continue baking for another 15-30 minutes. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
