The sugar in barbeque sauce is really what makes this method (its so easy its hardly a recipe!) work so well, but other marinades and sauces will work, so have fun experimenting with different flavors! I like to use a good quality Texas style barbecue sauce and serve on sourdough for a perfect vegetarian sandwich.
This is also a great vegan recipe if you need to feed a crowd, since its so easy, and, depending on the size of your oven, you can prepare a huge batch fairly quickly.

- firm or extra firm tofu, well drained
- barbecue sauce, about 1 cup
Line a cooking sheet with aluminum foil. This will help make cleaning up easier. Spoon a thin layer of barbecue sauce across the lined pan.
Slice pressed tofu into 1/2 inch thick cutlets and place in pan. Spoon a layer of sauce across the top of the tofu and bake for approximately one hour, checking occasionally so as not to overcook.
Tofu is done cooking when sauce has baked in and tofu is moist, but not saucy. Serve in a sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, relish and extra barbeque sauce. Yum!
