453g extra-firm tofu drained
1 tbsp olive oil
113g chopped green chiles drained
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
4 Bakers Delight Cape Seed Rolls
Other toppings for serving as desired, such as cabbage slaw, chopped green onion, or lettuce


    1. Step 1

      Wrap the drained tofu in a clean kitchen towel and place on a cutting board. Use a heavy object to press the tofu for at least 20 minutes, then slice into slabs. Prepare a plate lined with paper towels 

    2. Step 2

      Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. When hot, place the slabs of tofu into the skillet, and cook until browned and crisp on the bottom, 3-5 minutes. Gently flip and continue cooking until the other side is also crisp, 3-5 more minutes, then transfer to the paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil 

    3. Step 3

      When the tofu has cooled, slice into thick matchstick shapes. Add to a saucepan along with the rest of the ingredients, and cook over medium-low heat until heated through and the tofu has absorbed some of the barbecue sauce 

    4. Step 4

      Adjust seasoning to taste, and serve on Cape Seed Rolls
