BBQ TOFU

Today I Made:
BBQ TOFU, SPICY GARLIC SPINACH, AND BROWN RICE for DINNER.
This dinner is a combination of having leftover BBQ sauce from last weeks BBQ BEAN PATTIES, and having a block of tofu waiting to be used in the fridge.

So I looked thru VEGANOMICON and found a recipe for BBQ Tofu.
SInce I already had the sauce, all I had to do was press and drain the tofu, bake it in a little bit of olive oil and soy sauce for about 30 minutes ( turning after 15 minutes on each side ).
Then I added the BBQ sauce and baked it for an additional 15 minutes.

I dislike savory tofu dishes.
But other than that, I'm not too crazy about the texture.

I think I might have finally become a tofu lover.
Biting into the BBQ tofu was like biting into a piece of heaven.
It's so incredibly delicious.
My husband said that tonight's dinner was one of his all time favorites.
( Big smile on my face ).

And the spinach was great as usual, garlicky and spicy.
The brown rice, also delicious.

Can't wait to have leftover's tomorrow!!!

I don't much like savory tofu dishes either (you know - a hunk of tofu usually covered in something). But I've found that if I bake it far longer than "normal" it gets chewy and then I like it. I also like it frozen and then thawed before pressing/marinating. It changes the texture in a way I like. I still don't eat it all that often.
Your bbq tofu looks yummy!
