That's not yer daddy's BBQ





This is a favorite in our house. It's super easy, and it gets gobbled.

Gluten-Free Vegan BBQ Tofu


2 pkgs firm tofu, pressed/drained and diced
2 bottles gf BBQ sauce
1 large can of black beans (or 2 14.5 oz size) drained and rinsed
1 package of gf cornbread mix


Turn on your oven's broiler and scatter the tofu all over a big oiled glass casserole dish (11x13). Put the tofu in the oven while mixing up a double batch of gf cornbread.

Occasionally check on the tofu, and stir it around with a spatula. As the water starts to collect, lift the pan to drain it to one end, and absorb it with a napkin.

When the cornbread goes into the oven, take out the tofu and put the oven on whatever temp is required for your cornbread mix. Add the beans to the pan and pour both bottles of BBQ sauce over the top. Stir it a few times and then pop into the oven. When the cornbread is done, take everything out and serve!

I posted a marinade recipe here http://increasingveganicity.blogspot.com/2011/05/gift-that-goes-on-giving.html if you ever want to try making your own.

Oh, Lisey, I LOVE making my own!!

This is one of my "shortcut" recipes for crazy busy nights. And one that shows people they can totally go vegan without spending more time in the kitchen. I get that complaint a lot. That it takes too much time/money.

Well, I guess the only thing faster would be one of those frozen meal-in-a-bags with meat and everything (blecgh). But if you calculate the time you also spend on the toilet the next day ... you are still saving time going vegan! LOLOL
