I’ve always loved BBQ sauce but kind of low-key thought that unless you’re putting it on meat, it’s off-limits. But dang, it’s so good and is usually vegan-friendly! Just check the ingredients first if you opt for a store-bought version.

This is my favourite thing to make in the summer. Eat it outside, pair it with a cider and you’re good to go.

  • 2 tbsp Sriracha or hot sauce of your choice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 dashes liquid smoke
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Press tofu to remove any excess water.
  3. Cut tofu into thin, rectangular slices.
  4. Mix remaining ingredients together to make BBQ sauce.
  5. Marinade tofu in half of BBQ sauce for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Once tofu is done marinading, place slices on greased pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. When tofu is done, remove from oven and rough chop into much thinner slices.
  8. Mix in remaining BBQ sauce, let cool.
