Microwave Sticky Tofu Ribs


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 pound firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup vegan maple syrup (cheap versions work, too)
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • nonstick cooking spray or some vegan margarine


Find the biggest plate or platter that
will fit in your microwave, and spray
it with nonstick cooking spray or
grease it with vegan margarine.

Use frozen and defrosted tofu to get
the best texture. Cut it into 1/4 inch
slabs and squeeze all the moisture out
of it between two plates. In a bowl,
whisk together the BBQ sauce, orange juice,
vegan maple syrup and pepper.

Pour half of the sauce mixture onto
the greased plate and then arrange the
tofu slices on it to get the least
amount of overlapping pieces. Pour the
rest of the sauce on the top and pop
into a microwave.

Microwave on “high” for 10 minutes.
Sauce may splatter on the inside of
the microwave. After 10 minutes, let
the Tofu rest for 5 minutes, and check
the texture. It should be hard around
the edges and very firm in the middle.
If so, dig in. It tastes even better
when cold. If not, microwave in 3
minute increments until desired

This tofu also tastes great on a
charcoal BBQ, but make sure the grill
is greased to avoid sticking.

Even meat eaters enjoy this one
because the texture is so close to the
real thing. My Dog is crazy for it.
Also tastes great stuffed into a
sandwich with pickles and extra sauce
and some vegan coleslaw on the side.

Now that’s good eatin’! 😉
