Meat-Free Mondays – Barbecued Tofu Sandwich

Posted on May 5, 2008 by Allie



So many people complain to me that they don’t like the taste of tofu. The funny thing about that is that tofu pretty much ends up tasting like whatever you put on it. And it makes a great vehicle for BBQ sauce.

Lately, I’ve been working on a big project, and I’m all about simple meals, so this sandwich recipe from The Veggie Table is perfect. You can eat it plain or dress it up with roasted or grilled veggies (I think grilled peppers and BBQ sauce are a perfect combo), and soy or regular cheese. This sandwich has strong flavors, but tofu isn’t one of them.

Look for a sauce that is free of high fructose corn syrup. This one uses brown sugar instead of HFCS, but there are some great organic sauces (like the one pictured above) out there as well.

If you’re like me and you need a gluten-free bread option, check out Dianne’s recipe.

  1. I love Consorzio’s sauces! They’re always so flavorful.

  4. haha yes anything tastes good with barbecue sauce. I am sure my sons would eat cardboard if it was suitably sauced. I am not a big tofu fan. I prefer to stick to real foods and that never feels very real to me. The sandwich tastes nice – although I rarely eat them cos like I you avoid gluten and it is always a pain to get separate bread for me.

  6. Yes. BBQ sauce and hot sauce are two things that make almost any food taste better.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
