Veg Incredibly Flavorful Crispy BBQ Tofu Sandwich


Tofu: Extra-firm tofu, pressed and sliced into thick slabs, then coated in a seasoned cornstarch mixture for crispiness.
BBQ Sauce: A rich, smoky, and slightly sweet barbecue sauce, either homemade or your favorite store-bought variety, used to marinate and glaze the tofu.
Bread: Large, soft burger buns, ideally toasted to add a bit of crunch and flavor.
Coleslaw: A tangy and creamy coleslaw made with shredded cabbage, carrots, and a vegan mayo dressing, adding a refreshing crunch.
Pickles: Sliced dill pickles layered in the sandwich for an extra zing.
Onions: Optional caramelized onions for a sweet and savory depth of flavor.


Prepare the Tofu:
Press the tofu to remove excess moisture, then slice into slabs.
Coat the tofu slices in a mixture of cornstarch, salt, and pepper.
Pan-fry in a hot skillet with oil until each side is golden and crispy.
Once crispy, brush the tofu generously with BBQ sauce and let it caramelize in the pan for a few extra minutes.

Assemble the Sandwich:
Toast the burger buns to your liking.
Spread a little BBQ sauce on the bottom bun.
Layer the crispy BBQ tofu, a generous helping of coleslaw, a few slices of pickles, and caramelized onions if using.
Top with the other half of the bun.


Serve the Crispy BBQ Tofu Sandwich immediately while it's warm. The combination of the crispy, savory tofu with the sweet and tangy BBQ sauce and the creamy coleslaw makes for a truly satisfying meal. This sandwich is great for a hearty lunch or a casual dinner, and it pairs well with sides such as sweet potato fries, a simple salad, or extra pickles. Enjoy a burst of flavors and textures that make this vegan sandwich incredibly delightful and satisfying.
