However, we mustn’t forget that even vegetarians can enjoy the succulent, spicy cooking technique known by only 3 letters.

Today, Chef Zelicious brings us her take with BBQ Tofu!

  1. The first thing you want to do is press your tofu; you definitely want to use extra ­firm tofu so it’s not mushy.I know that most people have very strong feelings about tofu either way (you either hate it or you’re obsessed with it), but it’s all in the way you cook it. You have to press all the water out for about 20 minutes! Patience, my friends.

    Use a tofu press.

  2. Then you just marinate it in your favorite BBQ sauce and pan­ fry until it’s nice and crispy on the outside or grill the tofu.
