I made the Barbecued Tofu Sunday and then used it for dinner last night.
Ohhhhh, is it hot! My husband has warned me about his extra hot cayenne,
but I didn't cut down on the amount as he recommended, so I could hardly
eat it. If you make this you should consider whether or not you like "hot"
and spice accordingly.
I have not cooked much with tofu, and want to do more, so that was one of
the reasons I wanted to try this recipe. I used a low fat tofu that I can
find in only a few stores, such as Whole Foods.
I'm not a creative cook and thus almost always follow recipes instead of
instinct. But last night I was feeling experimental, so I mixed the tofu
into some frozen veggies that I was heating with barbecue sauce and added
some couscous for a fast after work meal. It was ok. Hubby liked it more
than I did so he gets the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Next time I will
use the tofu with the brown rice as suggested in the recipe. I cut the
recipe in half.
