{April 27, 2014}   Bread and Wine 15

BBQ Tofu “Burgers” (paired with 2011 Zoe- Agiorgitiko wine)

BBQ Tofu Burgers (based on BBQ Tofu burgers)


Tofu, sprouted, cut int 1/2 thick slices

Carolina treat (or BBQ sauce of choice)


Biscuits (yes I used Pillsbury)

How to:

Press the tofu (to remove moisture). Season tofu with BBQ seasoning. Bake 20 minutes per side at 350F. Bast with BBQ sauce. Cook 10 more minutes. Toast some biscuits. Serve with lettuce and more BBQ sauce.

Tasting Notes:


This sandwich was surprisingly filling. I liked how the baked tofu turned out as far as texture and flavor. It would be good to have some fresh tomato and perhaps a little more other veggies on the sandwich as well.  The wine is a good table red, but the varietal (Agiorgitiko) didn’t have anything that makes it stand out to me or want to seek out more of the same type.


Burgers were good, but not particularly filling. Needed something else that was crunchy. The wine was nothing special; wasn’t bad or good- just there.
