  • 1 (8-ounce) block extra firm tofu, drained and patted dry
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey or agave nectar
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1½ teaspoons Spike seasoning
  • ½ cup Pineapple and Honey BBQ Sauce or BBQ sauce of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Cut tofu into 3 wide, rectangular steaks. Place side by side in a 9" x13" baking dish.
  2. Drizzle with soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, turning steaks to coat.
  3. Sprinkle with minced garlic and press the pieces gently into the soft tofu.
  4. Rub steaks with oils and honey and sprinkle with yeast and Spike. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated and tofu is firm.
  5. Remove from oven and coat with BBQ sauce. Return to oven or transfer to an open grill. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until sauce caramelizes slightly. Slice into “rib” pieces and serve. Enjoy!
