  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 lbs. extra firm tofu drained and pressed
  • about 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced into strips
  • 1 medium onion sliced into strips
  • 4-6 sandwich rolls or burger buns sliced open
  1. Place tomato paste, maple syrup, whiskey, cider vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, smoked paprika, black pepper and cayenne into small saucepan over medium heat. Stir to blend and bring to a simmer. Lower heat and allow to simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes, until thick.
  2. While sauce simmers, oil grill and build a medium-high fire or heat gas grill to medium-high.
  3. Slice tofu in half, width-wise, and then slice into thirds or fourths, thickness wise (alternatively cut tofu based on the shape of your rolls and desired number of servings). Rub tofu slabs and veggies lightly with oil.
  4. Place tofu slabs, onions and peppers on grill. Cook tofu just until lightly charred, flip and cook just until lightly charred on opposite sides. Flip and brush with maple whiskey barbecue sauce. Cook about 2-3 more minutes, flip and brush the opposite sides with barbecue sauce, and cook about 2-3 minutes more, until nicely charred. Reserve excess sauce. Cook veggies until tender and charred.
  5. Stuff rolls with tofu and veggies, and top with remaining barbecue sauce.
