Ingredients
  

  • 1 350-400 g block of extra-firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (e.g. canola oil)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika or smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease or line a large baking tray.
  • Drain off any excess water from the tofu and pat dry. Use the large side of a cheese grater and grate the tofu into shreds.
  • In a large bowl, combine oil, soy sauce, chilli powder, paprika and garlic powder. Add the shredded tofu and gently mix so that the tofu is all coated.
  • Spread the tofu in an even layer on the prepared pan. Bake for 28-33 minutes until the tofu is browned. Stir the tofu half-way through cooking.
  • Heat the BBQ sauce and water. Stir in the baked tofu. Serve hot on a bun and add your favourite toppings. Or enjoy in tacos or a lettuce wrap.
