No Blues BBQ Sandwiches

A great veggie BBQ sandwich. My family loved it, and they hate tofu (I didn't tell them what was in it). Prep time does NOT include up to 5 days of marinating the tofu.


  1. Drain the tofu and cut it in half horizontally to make two pieces.
  2. Wrap the tofu in a clean towel, press it between two baking sheets with a weight on top, and refrigerate for an hour or more.
  3. Unwrap the tofu and place it in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Spoon 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce over the tofu, cover the baking dish, and let the tofu marinate in the refrigerator for at least several hours.
  5. The longer the tofu marinates (up to five days), the more flavorful it will be.
  6. Place the marinated tofu on a lightly oiled baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
  7. Slice the sandwich rolls open, cut the tofu into thin slices, and divide it among the rolls.
  8. Mix the sautèed onions, bell peppers, or your favorite fixings with the remaining barbecue sauce, and spoon over the sandwiches.

My waistline and arteries thank you. This recipe is a great to feed the BBQ sandwich craving without the guilt. I let it marinate for 3 days and topped my sandwich with sauteed onions and bell pepper, served with roasted potato wedges and jalapeno coleslaw. Thanks for posting the recipe.

What a great sandwich! The tofu is nice and firm, and the BBQ sauce adds a nice flavor. Had mine with lots of onions and lots of sauce. Yum! I cut the tofu into about 6 slices to marinate and then bake, only because I wanted more surface area to soak up all the sauce flavors. Thanks for the wonderful lunch, Mirj!
