Barbecued Tofu Bunwiches

If you like buns and want a healthful filling, try cutting wide slices of tofu and frying them in a little oil. You can also add mushrooms, garlic, and onions. Brush barbecue sauce (homemade or bottled) on tofu slices and continue to cook and turn the slices.

When the tofu slices are crispy, add them to a toasted bun and include bun fillings of choice, such as lettuce, cheese, sprouts, olives, etc. (basically, anything you would add to barbecued chicken or turkey).

Barbecued tofu bunwiches are delicious, full of flavor and good for you.
