Well, we can change that. Vegans can enjoy delicious BBQ too. After all, BBQ is all about the sauce, the spices and that caramelized, yummy goodness. So whether you eat seitan, tofu or tempeh, whether you cook it indoors or out, BBQ heaven awaits.
My Baked BBQ Tofu and Tempeh will change the way you think about BBQ. There’s nothing vegans can’t do! Enjoy!
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir and heat over medium heat until it comes to a bubble. Lower the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes until it thickens. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the tofu and tempeh into strips, cubes or whatever shapes you like. Apply the dry spice rub to the tofu and tempeh. Make sure the spices are pressed onto the tofu and tempeh and they are thoroughly covered. Put the pieces into a large bowl and let it sit while you cook the BBQ sauce.
When the sauce is done, pour it over the tofu and tempeh, making sure to cover them completely. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the pans from the oven, flip each piece of tofu and tempeh over carefully, and brush with more sauce. Bake for another 15 minutes or until the tofu and tempeh are browned and crisp. Remove from the oven and brush with the remaining BBQ sauce. Serve while hot.
