BBQ Baked Tofu


Homemade BBQ sauce:

  • About 4 tbsp ketchup
  • About 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire
  • 3 tsp brown sugar
  • Dash garlic salt
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Pinch salt

Heat sauce in the microwave in a prep bowl for 30-60 seconds to incorporate flavors.


Cut a large block of firm tofu (such as Trader Joe’s) in half and cut that into 3 slices.

Pressed under paper towels and heavy cutting boards for 20 minutes.

Cover with sauce on top and bottom of each slice.

Refrigerate for a few hours until time to bake.


When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350*, put pan in cold, and bake for 20 minutes.


The clumps are caramelized sauce scraped from the pan :)

Each block is about 110 kcal with sauce.

I’m always looking for healthy recipes and I have never tryed tofu before, but this looks tasty.

I don’t bake it. Here’s what I do:

Drain the water from the package. Freeze it. Thaw it. Press it. Cook it. You can marinate it for about 20-30 minutes, but you really don’t need to. Overnight, IMO, is way too long. If you freeze and press tofu, its soaks up stuff like a sponge! Freezing it for at least 24 hours will change the texture. You can even store tofu in the freezer, as it will be good for months.
