Barbecued Tofu

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Aunt Cookie

This is adapted from a Moosewood recipe. I think that freezing, thawing, and pressing the liquid out of the tofu really improves the texture and makes it better able to absorb the sauce. I guess it's not strictly necessary to do it, though. :) Enjoy!

Yummy! I halved the recipe and made this for lunch. Instead of the tomato paste, I used some homemade barbeque sauce. Loved it! Thank you Aunt Cookie!
