Barbecue Tofu Sandwich

Barbecue Tofu Sandwich

My 6 year old son has been asking me to make something with tofu for a few months now.  He does not like most meats so meal time is very stressful.  I bit the bullet and decided to try an easy recipe that I found, the Barbecue Tofu Sandwich.  Since I am new to cooking with tofu I chose to read everyones comments, reviews, and suggestions.  I made sure to follow some of those suggestions so that I did not get it wrong.  I omitted the onions, of course, and added in some chopped mushrooms.  I made sure to drain the tofu between paper towels and plates for 20-30 minutes.  Then I sliced the tofu and placed it in the freezer for an hour.  While cooking the tofu did fall apart and look a little more like scrambled egg whites.  This was not discouraging because bbq sandwiches are usually made with shredded meat anyway, not meat slices.  I put the tofu mixture on a bun with a tomato.  The whole family enjoyed the end result.  I would like to make a small note.  3 tbsp seemed to be too much oil.  I would cut it down to 2 I think.  I ended up dumping some of it out since I almost started a grease fire with 3!

The fresh tomato salad was our side of choice with the tofu sandwiches.  I did change it up a bit.  I left out the onions and bell peppers.  The salad was pretty good but it had an unpleasant bite.  I think that leaving out the garlic and substituting olive oil for the vinegar would have cut the bite out of it.  It all really is a matter of personal taste.  For us, the salad was too overpowering.
