Daven Lee's Finger Lickin' BBQ Tofu
"Eat it with your lover, share it with your friends!"
Freeze, thaw completely, squeeze out excess water & cut into 1/2" x 3" strips: 3 lbs (blocks) firm tofu
Marinade for Tofu
6 Tlbs peanut butter
2/3 cup oil
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp salt (or less to your taste)
Whip (mix) until smooth and pour over tofu strips, mix (squeeze) in as evenly as possible. Marinate 1 hour while preparing sauce below. After tofu has marinated, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay tofu out in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet which has been smeared with 1/4 cup oil. Bake for 25 min on each side (till their bottoms are brown). Scrape into BBQ sauce and simmer together for 20 more min.
Add frozen corn and rice 1-2 cups each to make a complete meal.
1/3 cup oil, 1 medium onion chopped, 2 cloves garlic minced ~ saute together until onions are transparent
Stir in while simmering:
2 1/2 cups tomato sauce (24 oz can)
1/4 cup water
1 tsp allspice
1 Tlbs crushed red pepper or 3/4 tsp cayenne
1 cup brown sugar (you can use maple syrup or sucanat)
1 Tlbs molasses
1 1/2 tsp dried parsley OR 1 Tlbs fresh parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup regular yellow sandwich mustard
Bring everything to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 1 hour while sauce reduces and thickens.
