Ingredients

1 (14-ounce) package firm tofu, drained and cut into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup commercial barbecue sauce
4 (2-ounce) hamburger buns

Preparation

Place tofu on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 1 hour, pressing down occasionally. Sprinkle slices with salt.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge tofu slices in flour. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu; brush half of barbecue sauce over tofu, and cook 2 minutes. Turn slices over; brush with remaining barbecue sauce, and cook 3 minutes or until tofu is glazed. Place 2 tofu slices on bottom halves of buns; cover with tops of buns.
