This recipe proves that you can transform a brick of tofu and a few basic ingredients (panko, ketchup, Dijon mustard, maple syrup) into a meal that kids will clamour for. The smallest ones in the family might need their tofu sliced into sticks rather than larger chunks (finger food is always a fail-safe plan when kids are involved). Then just serve the zingy sauce on the side and watch as they dip the delectably crispy bites with abandon.

Ingredients

Barbecue Sauce

Tofu

Preparation

Barbecue Sauce

  1. In a small pot over medium heat, melt the butter with the spices. Whisk in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Season with pepper and set aside.

Tofu

  1. Beat the egg in a shallow dish. Place the panko in a second dish. Season the tofu with salt and pepper.
  2. Dip the tofu in the beaten egg. Shake to remove any excess, then firmly press into the panko to coat.
  3. In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, brown half of the tofu at a time in the oil. Add oil, if needed. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Serve the tofu with the lettuce wedges and the barbecue sauce.
