BBQ Tofu

On weekends, I like to try to use up any leftovers in our fridge, and any staple items we have in the pantry, before I go grocery shopping for the next week. Last night’s dinner was delicious– and it used up several leftovers! I was proud of myself! I had some leftover firm tofu in the fridge, from some mushroom-tofu wontons I made last week, and I also had some kale and rapini from last week’s CSA box that had to be used up. I also had half a bottle of BBQ sauce left over from a BBQ chicken dish I made a week ago. So, I threw it all together and it turned out quite well! We had BBQ tofu, kale and rapini sauteed in toasted sesame oil and olive oil, and rice. An easy (and incidentally vegan) weekend evening dinner! (The BBQ sauce contained no anchovies, and was completely vegan.) The tofu was delicious, and it was the easiest thing to make: just cover with the BBQ sauce, and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Surprisingly, Emmett (who normally eats his greens before touching anything else on his plate!) went wild over the tofu, and couldn’t get enough of it! That was really cute; I guess I’ll be making BBQ tofu again sometime soon!
