1 lb. extra-firm tofu
1 cup barbecue sauce
4 whole wheat sandwich rolls
Sandwich fixin’s: sautèed onions, diced bell peppers, etc.
• Drain the tofu and cut it in half horizontally to make two pieces. 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.
• Unwrap the tofu and place it in a shallow baking dish. 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. The longer the tofu marinates (up to five days), the more flavorful it will be.
• Place the marinated tofu on a lightly oiled baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Slice the sandwich rolls open, cut the tofu into thin slices, and divide it among the rolls. Mix the sautèed onions, bell peppers, or your favorite fixings with the remaining barbecue sauce, and spoon over the sandwiches.
