BBQ Tofu Cubes

What you need: 

1 tablespoon oil

2/3 cup vegan BBQ sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce (I use low sodium)
Louisiana hot sauce, to taste
1 tablespoon sugar

What you do: 

1. Heat oil in frying pan and add tofu. Saute on medium until the tofu starts to turn a light golden color.
2. Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients, and heat them in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir this sauce and add it to the tofu.
3. Continue to cook on medium until the sauce has gotten very thick.
Very popular with toddlers!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I love sweet barbecue sauce and this was fabulous and very easy.  Next time, I think I will marinate the tofu in the sauce first and then bake it.  This was really great and kid friendly.

This is now our favorite recipe (out of a lot of recipes!). It came out absolutely perfect. I use extra firm nonsilken tofu that has been frozen, thawed, and squeezed. I sprinkled some cornstarch over the cubes (but I don't know if it actually did anything, in this case. I used sriracha, and just added some soy sauce and sugar. I fried my tofu in canola oil until golden..added the sauce...and it took about 10-15 minutes to really thicken. I served it over brown rice and asparagus on the side. Soooo good! The texture and flavor were both perfect! Thanks!

This was sooo yummy!  I didn't have Louisiana Hot Sauce so I used Cholula.  I have a 9 month old son and he loved this too.  It was prefect for him to pick up and feed himself.  In fact he liked it so much that when he was done eating he kept crawling over to me to eat my portion of tofu.  It was funny but it goes to show how good this recipe is.  Thank you for posting!!

YUMMO!!! I finally bought some tofu today...I was a lil intimidated by it, but I keep seeing sooo many delicious recipes that I want to try, so I bit the bullet...I did a quick marinade of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce...sauteed the tofu in a lil oil with some sliced onions...I just mixed some bbq sauce with water (didn't add any sugar), poured the sauce over the tofu and let it thicken...WOW...my mom wanted to try it---she ate it straight out of the pan!! She loved it---she said it tasted too sweet for her, so I'm happy I didn't add the sugar...I will definitely be making this again in the near future... :P

Yes, barbeque sauce is quite sweet. My fave is Sweet Baby Ray's; it is sweet, but very tasty! I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a barbeque sauce that isn't sweet, since it is pretty much part of the deal. :-) This recipe is great though, so if you want to try it out, you might want to use the hot sauce or something similar to balance it out.

I am a recent vegetarian convert and this recipe will make the transition much easier!

SO GOOD

I varied mine by adding broccoli and grilled pineapple, all served over rice. A definite keeper!

Mmmm...tasty. I made 1.5 times the amount of sauce and added a full bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables (I stir-fried it in the pan for a couple minutes before adding the sauce). Then I served it over couscous. It made about 2 large servings. I used chicken wing sauce instead of hot sauce, and liquid aminos instead of soy sauce. I even made a mistake and added too much sugar, but it was still good, although slightly sweet. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks!

mm. I just made this and am still eating it. it made plenty. I got the Nasoya Extra Firm tofu and accidentally got the cubed, but it worked out great because the cubes were the perfect size. I put a little soy sauce on the tofu prior to cooking, and ended up letting it cook in a nonstick pan for quite a while. (I was afraid of ending up with the wrong texture) I also steamed some broccoli and added it in a little while after I added the sauce. Also I added sesame seeds. it would be delicious on top of some rice, but I didn't think of that til later! very very good!!
