We’ve been continuing to cook and practice with our grill. It’s often hard to get Mr. K to eat healthy, but one thing he really enjoys is baked or grilled tofu fries. The tofu is cooked until the exterior is golden and crisp. I’ve done it several times in the oven and on my George Foreman grill, but this time we put it on our BBQ grill outside.

To give them an extra flavor boost, I brushed the finished fries with a Stubb’s Spicy BBQ sauce. These were easy to make and tasty. Mr. K kept sneaking ones into his mouth before I could photo them and they were completely gone soon after. We’ll have to make a bigger batch next time.

These tofu fries are grilled until crisp and then brushed with BBQ sauce, making for a healthy summer treat.


  • 2 packages firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • additional BBQ sauce for dipping


  1. Preheat grill or oven to 375°F.
  2. Slice tofu into 1/2 inch thick sticks, so that they resemble thick cut french fries. Using a few paper towels, pat fries to eliminate water.
  3. Brush fries with a thin layer of BBQ sauce. Lay tofu on grill (baking sheet lined with parchment paper if baking). Cook for about 20-25 minutes until fries are golden and crisp. You may want to flip them halfway into cooking to ensure that they brown and crisp evenly on all sides.
  4. Brush with BBQ sauce again right before serving and also serve with a side of BBQ sauce for dipping.

  1. This recipe sounds pretty tasty!  Do you do anything to keep the tofu from sticking to the grill?

    • i didnt have any issues. i mean they do stick a little and leave grill marks, but it wasn’t to the point that we couldn’t get it off
