A little store-bought barbecue sauce transforms tofu from blah to bliss. Paired with sweet Vidalia onions (or red ones, if Vidalias arenít available), and you have a protein-packed, low fat (only 9 grams!), absolutely no-cholesterol tasty meal.
You can serve this over rice, or on its own with a salad and side. Healthy, nutritious, and completely mouth-watering.
1 1/2 tablespoons light olive oil
2 large Vidalia or red onions, quartered and thinly sliced
1 pound firm or extra-firm tofu, well-drained and diced
1/2 cup natural barbecue sauce, or as needed
1. Heat the oil in a stir-fry pan or large skillet. Add the onions and saute over medium heat until lightly golden.
2. Add the tofu and barbecue sauce and turn the heat up to medium-high. Stir-fry for 6 to 8 minutes, and serve on its own or over hot cooked rice.
