So I do enjoy tofu, and the flavors in this sandwich were really good (I love the tangy/creamy combo) but the texture of the tofu was a little off putting. I was hoping the tofu slices would get a little crispier on the edges with the frying but mine didn't. It did help to toast the bun and the crunch of the coleslaw was good, but then you bite into that tofu... Maybe it was just the contrasting textures that didn't work quite as well as I had hoped. Still good though, and I might try this one again now that I know what to expect.
BBQ Tofu Sandwich
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
Though vegetarian BBQ may be an oxymoron, once you take a bite of this delicious tofu sandwich topped with coleslaw and dill pickles you won’t mind the contradiction. Serve with: Baked beans and corn on the cob.
8 Reviews for BBQ Tofu Sandwich
These burgers are an easy weeknight dinner, are very delicious and--best of all--my vegetable averse teenager loved them. I doubled the recipe so had lots of leftovers. They make great cold lunch sandwiches for the next day.
I don't really like coleslaw, so I was going to just go without it but decided to try the dressing with lettuce instead. I loved it!
Also, I may have done something wrong because the tofu took at least 10 minutes per side to brown on medium heat, not 4 as the recipe said. I'd never made tofu before, so I have no idea what it should have done. Any thoughts? It still came out a decent consistency (as far as I could tell, anyway!)
I made this recipe during a BBQ we had the other day. It was pretty good. Im trying to eat less meat, and so this was a great alternative to the Bbq chicken and Carne Asada my family made. In fact, some of them were eyeing my sandwich! I used the recipe from the P90x coleslaw that I had, and used whole wheat sandwich rolls instead of the recommended bread but it was still good.
Made the recipe just as written and really enjoyed it! I could take or leave the onions but loved the slaw on the sandwich plus it was really fast and easy. I'll defnitely be making this again.
