Tofu? Tofu Waffle? BBQ? Sooooo delicious and easy to make.
As a Meetup leader, I have the privilege of being surrounded by nice people who follow a whole food, plant-based diet. Meet Others: Socialize with like minded people so you don’t lose your mind.
We are fortunate to have some wonderful cooks in our group, who are willing to do recipe demos. They are talented and able to convert SAD recipes to compliant, whole food, plant-based, sugar, oil and salt free recipes. These members earn a Green Star each time they do a demo for our group.

1 tsp. organic smoked paprika
1⁄4 tsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce ( Beverly likes Wizard brand)

Barbecue Tofu Waffles
Drain one carton of firm or extra firm tofu. Cut in slices that will fit your waffle maker. Place it on paper towels or a clean tea towel, cover it with the same, and press gently with your hands to remove some of the water.
Place BBQ sauce on a shallow plate and drag each piece of tofu through the sauce until it is coated on all sides.
Preheat your waffle iron on its highest setting. Once it is hot, place the tofu on the waffle iron. Save the extra sauce for applying afterward when serving. Gently close the waffle iron and set a timer for 4-5 minutes.
Keep the waffle iron closed for at least 4 minutes (unless you smell something burning). Waffle irons vary so check it after 4 minutes and then at 1-2 minute intervals. It should be uniformly browned not wet.
If some pieces cook more quickly than others remove them as they get done.
Brush with extra barbecue sauce.
Serve alone or on sandwiches.
