  • Combine cornmeal, flour, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a resealable plastic bag; shake to mix. Gently shake tofu slices with cornmeal mixture to coat, then shake off excess, and place into prepared baking dish.

  • Bake tofu in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn the pieces over and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add minced onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and barbeque sauce. Bring to a simmer, then turn heat to low and keep warm until the tofu is ready.

  • When tofu has finished baking, pour the hot barbeque sauce overtop, then return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

I have made this recipe twice now. Both times I sliced the tofu then pressed it for 1/2 hour before continuing with the recipe. I find this makes for a firmer baked tofu. The first time I coated the tofu and baked it according to the directions. The second time I coated the tofu then fried it in just a little oil on both sides just till golden then I baked it. I found this made a pleasing crunchy coating. I used my bottled barbeque sauce as is rather than adding the additional ingredients. I like the coating and the addition of the bbq was good. I serve this with homemade coleslaw and corn on the cob for a summer bbq treat. I will make this again. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as written but it was just really not good. We tried to eat it but after about four bites we just couldn't. Sorry! Read More

I changed this A LOT. I didn't have any cornmeal so I used Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. I left out the chili powder but used all the other spices. As some other commenters suggested. I fried it up in a pan with just some spray oil then baked it. It then occurred to me that with the Italian seasonings and bread crumbs maybe pasta sauce would be a more appropriate topping than barbeque. So that's what I did and it was FAB. My husband said it was just like eating lasagne. I felt like I was eating cubes of ricotta and my subconscious starting telling me I would get fat! But no it's just tofu. Delish! Read More

I really enjoyed this dish. It really depends on how good the BBQ sauce is (I used the Big Al's KC BBQ sauce found on this site). Delicious! The only thing that would make this better is frying the tofu rather only baking it. Read More

This tofu turns out so amazingly flavorful. I love the cornmeal mixture the tofu is "breaded" in. Recipe was also very easy to make. Great for vegetarians. Read More

I sliced the tofu into strips as I was using it as more of an appy rather than a meal. I fried them first in a little oil before baking and added some toasted sesame seeds. My kids who have claimed to dislike tofu (mostly due to texture) actually enjoyed this. Very good and thank you Leah! Read More

It was quite yummy! I used a bar-b-que sauce with A1 in it and it was very tasty...I plan on trying different sauces to see what flavors I can come up with. Also the coating was good but I think I'll saute it next time I love a crunch on my tofu this had it on the edges but not so much in the middle (I used extra firm tofu). Read More
