Though vegetarian BBQ may be an oxymoron, once you take a bite of this delicious tofu sandwich topped with coleslaw and dill pickles you won’t mind the contradiction. Serve with: Baked beans and corn on the cob.

1/4 cup  thinly sliced onion
1 14-ounce package  extra-firm or firm water-packed tofu, drained
1/8 teaspoon  salt
1 tablespoon  canola oil
1/2 cup  prepared barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups  coleslaw mix (see Note) or finely shredded cabbage
2 tablespoons  low-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons  red-wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon  garlic powder
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4   whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted

Note: Look for preshredded cabbage-and-carrot “coleslaw mix” near other prepared vegetables in the produce section.

DIRECTIONS
Place onion in a small bowl, cover with cold water and set aside. Stand tofu on its long narrow side. Cut lengthwise into 4 rectangular slabs, each about 1/2 inch thick, and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt.


Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the tofu slabs (depending on the size of your pan, the tofu may slope up the sides a little). Cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low. Add barbecue sauce and carefully turn the tofu to coat with the sauce. Cover and cook for 3 minutes more.


Meanwhile, combine coleslaw (or cabbage), mayonnaise, vinegar, garlic powder and pepper in a medium bowl. Drain the onion.


To assemble sandwiches, place about 1/3 cup of the coleslaw (or cabbage) mixture on each bun and top with a tofu slab, a pickle slice and a few onion slices. Spread any sauce remaining in the pan on the top buns.
