Tofu with Miso and Barbecue Sauce
This recipe comes courtesy of the Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee. Plain tasting tofu pairs beautifully with the intense salty miso for a gutsy appetizer. It can also be served with Asian noodles as an entrée. Any type of miso will work in this marinade. Be sure to use water-packed extra firm tofu in this recipe.
