bbq pulled tofu sandwich

I have to give Sarah Martel, RD credit for this delicious sandwich made with shredded tofu. It's ridiculously good and she's an absolute genius for grating tofu and baking it! I first saw the recipe on tiktok and immediately went to the store to get ingredients to make it.

The tofu ends up looking and tasting like crispy hash browns (scroll down for evidence!). You just add bbq sauce and place it inside of a bun with some veggies. It's hearty, easy to make, and so filling. Give it a try with the recipe below. Hope you enjoy xo


16 oz extra firm tofu

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp minced garlic
