BBQ Tofu, Onion, and Pepper Burritos

I've been changing my diet more toward being almost completely vegetarian and I  thought I would share with you a burrito I invented that is pretty yummy.


2 onions
2 cloves of garlic
Soy Sauce (I use low sodium)
1 Red Pepper
1 cup of water
Burrito size tortillas
1 container of firm Tofu
BBQ sauce

I takes a day to prepare the Tofu so I will go over that first. Drain all of the water out of the container of Tofu. Place the Tofu brick between layers of paper towels, then place a heavy weight on top. Here are instructions for doing it. I use a frying pan with a tea kettle full of water. It's important to do this so the Tufu will soak up the liquid from the marinade.

While the Tufu is being drained of water finely chop onion and mince the garlic and add it to about 1/4 cup of soy sauce to make the marinade.

When the Tufu is ready slice it into about 1/4 inch slices. Place the slices into a bowl or plastic bag with the marinade and let it soak overnight.

Warm your oven to 280 degrees Fahrenheit, spray an oven pan lightly with oil then place Tufu strips into the oven flipping them when they are brown. It should take about an hour to dry out the moisture from the Tofu. Cut the Tofu into the desired size and had a coating of BBQ sauce, mix then it's ready.

Dice the remaining onion and green pepper and place into a pot with the one cup of water. Boil the onion and peppers until they are tender.

Place the pepper and onions onto tortillas with the BBQed Tofu and roll into a burrito.



  1. Wow, this recipe sounds really easy and tasty to boot! Are you trying to become a full-fledged vegetarian, or just incorporate more veggies in your diet? Either way, good on you!

    I should send you some of my favorite recipes. There is a restaurant up here called Native Foods, and they post amazing recipes on their blog.

    1. Hey Jen,
      I'm pretty much going vegetarian all the way. But I do like to have eggs once and a while. It's all for getting my health the way I want it to be. The movie Forks over knives was the push over the edge. I've been getting the results that I want with the diet change and riding my bike for an hour and a half every other day. I also cut out alcohol except for once and a while. It's all part of my not falling over dead plan.

      And yes I'll check out that site, thanks!
