Barbecue Tofu Sandwiches

No really. These are delicious, crazily-so.

1 pound extra firm tofu
1 egg
1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 cup broth (veggie, chicken, or beef)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 fresh sage leaves, snipped very small

canola oil
peanut oil, butter, or extra virgin coconut oil

For barbecue sauce:
1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Hamburger buns
lettuce & tomato

Slice the tofu to resemble patties – about 3/8″ thick. Combine the egg and yogurt and whisk; add the broth. Marinade the tofu patties for 2 hours or overnight.

Mix up the barbecue sauce ingredients. Heat on the stove to a boil, then turn heat off.

Combine the flours, yeast, salt, parsley, cayenne, and sage. Heat the oil(s) in a skillet on medium to medium high heat. Fry the slices of tofu until golden on each side; drain on a paper towel. Smother with barbecue sauce and serve immediately on fresh buns with lettuce, tomato, and sauce of choice.
