Recipe Remix: Indian Spiced BBQ Tofu

For dinner a few nights ago I wanted something quick and easy, but also delicious. I’ve had some garam masala sitting in my cabinet that I’ve been using much more slowly than the other spices from my Penzey’s purchase (smoked paprika, mustard seed, sesame seeds, spicy cinnamon, Aleppo pepper), so I decided to do another version of my Baked BBQ Tofu, this time with an Indian-inspired bbq sauce.

Indian Spiced BBQ Tofu


1 block extra firm tofu
1/4 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garam masala
2 shots of sriracha


  1. Cut tofu to pieces of your liking (I cut it into 2 flat sheets then 6 equal sized pieces for a total of 12 pieces)
  2. In a large bowl, whisk remaining ingredients together; add tofu, turning pieces to coat.
  3. Pour tofu and sauce into large greased skillet. Cook over medium-high flame 4-5 minutes on each side until edges are just a bit crispy.

The cost:
tofu: 1.99
other ingredients: <1.00

Grand total: $2.99; serves 3-4 over rice or quinoa with a side of steamed veggies
