BBQ Tofu Sliders with Baked Sweet Potato Fries
BBQ Tofu Sliders
1 16 oz block of super firm tofu sliced 1/4 inch thick
BBQ sauce (I like Red Tail bbq sauce and it has no high fructose corn syrup)
optional: pickles, coleslaw, onions, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions or whatever you like
1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Place tofu on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and cover each piece of tofu with a generous amount of bbq sauce. Put in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the bbq sauce begins to caramelize but not burn. Turn over and cover the bottom of the tofu with a generous amount of bbq sauce and cook for another 12 minutes or so until the bbq sauce begins to get crispy. If needed cut your baked bbq tofu so they fit nicely in the slider bun and top with toppings of your choice. Serve with sweet potato fries, salad, coleslaw or whatever you wish.
Sweet Potato Fries
1 pound of sweet potatoes cut into french fry shapes
salt and pepper to taste
1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle olive oil over the top until the potatoes are lightly coated and add salt and pepper to your taste. Cook for 15 minutes and then take out of the oven and turn over to try to get both sides crispy, put back in the over to cook for another 10 minutes. Be careful sweet potatoes are very easy to burn do to there sugar content.
Note: You can cook the tofu and the fries in the oven at the same time and have a nice dinner done in less than 30 minutes.
