Barbecued Braised Tofu

Do you like barbecued food?

This is a great one to add if you want to balance your estrogens; if you’ve got PMS, mood swings, or hot flashes for example. (It also could help, especially when combined with decreasing dairy if you’re a guy who is losing his hair!) 

It would be more helpful if you ladies cut back on the cheese too. Just so you know.

The recipe makes 8 servings.

Recipe from: Dr. Leslie

Author: Dr. Leslie

Prep: 24 hours + Cook Time: 1 hour = Total: 25 hours 

Ingredients

 1 lb organic tofu
 Your favorite barbecue sauce

Directions

1

Place the tofu on a cutting board and put a heavy object on top of it to squeeze out the excess water. (A cast-iron frying pan works really well for this.)

2

Let it sit for 10-20 minutes. (Check it and rebalance the weighted object if necessary)

3

Drain it & discard the water

4

Slice the tofu into slices a ¼-½ inch thick.

5

Cover the bottom of a glass container with barbecue sauce and then a layer of tofu.

6

Layer with more sauce & continue layering.

7

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (Overnight is better.)

The Day After
8

Put the tofu directly on a rack in a preheated 375-degree oven.

9

Place a drip pan under it.

10

Bake for up to an hour; turning after 30 minutes. (Be very gentle when turning it. It will have a tendency to break or stick. You can also brush the rack with oil first if desired)

11

Add additional sauce when you turn it if desired.

12

The longer you bake, the chewier it will get. It will also get even chewier if you let it cool.

You can serve this as part of a meal, or as a snack or appetizer. So, I’m not telling you to replace your steak; just add this for now. 

I find it makes a great mid-afternoon snack when my concentration is waning. I just eat cold straight out of the frig.

ENJOY!!
