Vegan-Friendly Summer Foods
Grillin’ Out with BBQ Tofu
Summer wouldn’t be complete without the rich, smoky flavors of barbecue. Whether you’re hosting a cookout or simply craving that sweet sauce, our all-organic tofu and house-made BBQ sauce will not disappoint.
Any great meal starts with premium ingredients, and barbecue is no exception. As the only commercial tofu producer in the South, we make our tofu using traditional Chinese recipes. Aside from being the freshest tofu possible, our tofu is handmade to be a more dense protein that can hold up to grilling or wok frying. The dense texture is still moist and will even soak up open flame flavors on the grill without falling apart. House of Leaf & Bean tofu is the key ingredient to juicy, charred and crispy BBQ. Marinate it in our house-made sauce for classic sweet, smokey and rich flavors.

House of Leaf & Bean BBQ Sauce
Cut tofu into thick slices
In a gallon size Ziploc bag, combine tofu with enough BBQ sauce to coat tofu completely. Seal the bag and turn over a few times to evenly coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Add tofu to the grill and cook for 2 minutes. Flip tofu over and baste with BBQ sauce and grill for 2 additional minutes or until cooked through.
