Shredded Tofu Chik'n BBQ Sandwich

Tofu does it again with this amazing and scrumptious transformation. This recipe is easy to make and is a crowd pleaser.


  • 1 block of extra firm tofu

  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper

  • ¼ cup of water

  • ½ cup of BBQ sauce

Slaw Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of shredded green cabbage

  • ¼ cup of shredded carrots

  • ¼ cup of thinly sliced red onions

  • ½ cup of vegan mayo (store bought or check out this oil free recipe from FOK)

  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt

  • Pepper to taste

Additional Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat buns

  • Pickles


For the slaw, in a medium bowl, add shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and thinly sliced red onions. In a separate bowl, mix together the vegan mayo, lemon juice, salt, and pepper then add to the shredded veggies and mix well. Let rest in the refrigerator so flavors can combine. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pat tofu dry then, using a large grater, grate the block of tofu into shreds. Add shreds, soy sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper to a bowl and gently toss until well combined. Spread the tofu evenly onto a pan and bake for about 30 minutes, stirring midway through until lightly browned. Add water and BBQ sauce to a pan on low/medium heat and mix together. Add in tofu shreds, stir well and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add BBQ tofu, slaw, and pickles to the bun and enjoy!
