This Baked BBQ Tofu Sandwich is sweet and spicy. The baked BBQ tofu is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Add some pineapple and onion, and you have a match made in heaven! Made with a 4 Ingredient Sriracha BBQ Sauce, it couldn't be any easier!
This Baked BBQ Tofu Sandwich has my favorite flavor combination, so I will be making this vegan sandwich over and over again. It has a sweet, savory, and slightly spicy flavor profile.
For this tofu BBQ sandwich, I sautéed pineapple in coconut oil until browned. I topped the pineapple over some savory onion and my Baked BBQ Tofu recipe that was baked in my 4 Ingredient BBQ Sriracha Sauce.
If you don't like raw onions on a sandwich, you could caramelize them. I wouldn't skip them altogether because I think they add a great flavor to the sandwich.
If you've ever bought baked tofu, you'll love how much cheaper making your own is. It really is quite easy and doesn't take much prep time at all.
Many baked tofu products contain gluten, so for those of you avoiding it, making your own is a great solution.
This vegan tofu sandwich is healthy and satisfying. Even the pickiest eaters will love it.

Step 1: Cook pineapple slices in coconut oil until browned.
Step 2: Layer toast with lettuce, BBQ tofu, pineapple, and onion.
- If you like to slather extra sauce on your vegan sandwiches, then I would make a whole batch of the 4 Ingredient Sriracha BBQ Sauce (the Baked BBQ Tofu only calls for ½ of a batch).
- If you aren't a raw onion fan on your sandwiches, caramelize them instead.
- If you're using brown rice bread or another gluten-free bread, I recommend toasting it. It tastes so much better than straight out of the fridge.
- I recommend taking the few minutes it takes to sauté the pineapple. It brings out its sweetness.
- Serve this vegan tofu sandwich hot or cold, but I think hot is better.
- If you're in a hurry, you could always use store-bought BBQ sauce, but considering it only has 4 ingredients and doesn't have to be cooked, I think it's worth taking a couple of minutes it takes to make it.
