  • 14 oz firm tofu crumbled or cubed
  • 1 medium sweet potato cubed
  • 16 oz Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce your favourite
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice quinoa, or other grain of your choice


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F / 200°C
  • Use your hands to crumble the tofu into bite-sized pieces, or slice it into cubes if you prefer.
  • Trim and halve the brussels sprouts. Cut the sweet potato into one-inch cubes.
  • In separate bowls, toss the tofu and vegetables each with 2 tablespoons olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. 
  • Line one sheet pan with parchment paper, and spread the tofu out into a single layer.
  • Spread the vegetables onto the other sheet pan, without parchment (though you could totally use some if you prefer - it's just not as necessary here).
  • Place both pans into the oven to roast for about 20 minutes at 400°F /200°C. 
    The tofu should be browned and crispy, and the vegetables tender but notsoft, and crisped on the outside. 
  • Place the baked tofu into a bowl, and add at least ½ cup of your favourite BBQ sauce. 
    It may look like a lot of sauce at first, but those crisp sides really soak it up, so don't hold back. 
  • Divide the rice vegetables, and oven-baked tofu between 4 bowls.
  • I like to drizzle the veggies and rice with a bit of tahini for extra flavour. That's it! Lunch / dinner / whatever is served!


  • Nutrition values are an estimate only.
  • The crispy baked tofu is crispiest when served straight from the oven. Having said that, leftovers are delicious, and re-heat well. 
  • These BBQ Tofu Bowls are great served warm, cold, or room temperature. Perfect for packed lunches or picnics.
  • Want to mix up the veggies? Go for it! Use whatever you've got on hand, what's in season, or whatever your favourites are. 
  • Mix up the base! Try cooked quinoa, farro, or wheat berries in place of the brown rice.
  • For a lighter bowl you can replace the rice with greens instead.
