Baked Barbecue Tofu
This chewy, succulent barbecue comes straight out of the oven
1 pound (450g) tofu, drained and pressed, cut widthwise into eighths
2 tablespoons peanut oil or your favorite cooking oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 recipe backyard barbecue sauce (or use store-bought barbecue sauce)
Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
In a 9 x 18-inch (23cm x 45cm) (preferably glass or ceramic) baking pan, dredge the tofu in the peanut oil and tamari to coat on both sides. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the slices and bake for 15 more minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the barbecue sauce.
When the tofu is done baking, pour the sauce over it, smothering it all over. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 15 more minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
