Gluten-Free Vegan Chard Barbecue Beans with Tofu
1/2 Gluten-Free Sweet Barbecue Sauce Recipe
1 lb. firm tofu, cut horizontally and pressed in a towel for 30 minutes, then cubed
1 can black, red, or other beans of your choice, drained
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Bake beans in 1/4 of the barbecue sauce in a corningware type pan while you prepare the tofu and bake the tofu.
Place tofu on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Coat with olive oil and toss, and sprinkle with smoked paprika on both sides and salt to taste. Bake for 15-20 minutes and then turn when tofu cubes are brown on one side.
Add the chopped chard to the baking beans and return to oven.
Bake tofu until the other side is browned. Add to bbq chard and beans along with additional 1/4 recipe barbecue sauce. Make sure tofu is thoroughly coated. Bake for another 10-20 minutes and serve.
