Lunch/Dinner

BBQ Tofu

I made this recipe weeks ago, I shared a photo of my result on Instagram  I had promised I’d share the recipe, and I just realized that I never did! Oi!  I’m so sorry I completely forgot to!  I honestly had only taken one photo anyways, with my phone none-the-less. I made it again last night for dinner and that’s when I remembered I forgot to share it on here. So, I was sure to take lots of photos, with my big girl camera, and write up a post today.  Again, I apologize for the late post!

This is another super easy recipe, and a favorite of mine.  I used to hate Tofu, but it’s become one of my most favorite foods. It’s so versatile, and I love that it takes on whatever flavor you add to it.  One night I was in the mood for something with BBQ and decided to experiment with the tofu. It came out so good, I didn’t need to make any additional adjustments!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!  And, share your side dishes you made with it in the comments! I’d love to hear your spin on it. 🙂

Season the tofu with some salt and pepper, then brush the agave syrup all over. You only want a smidgen, so a teaspoon should be enough for the entire piece.

Heat a frying pan with about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Then, sear the tofu on both sides until golden. About 2-3 minutes per side.

Heat the oven to 375F. Transfer the seared tofu to a greased baking dish. Cover the tofu with the BBQ sauce (I smothered it well! The tofu will absorb some of it!)
