So you've given up the cow, the chicken, and the pig. That doesn't mean you've abandoned the smoky, sweet, or sour flavors classic BBQ is known for. Crisped tofu tossed in tangy BBQ seasoning makes for a worthy addition to the canon. Sweet corn and feisty jalapéno round out this bowl which shows that giving up meat doesn't mean you have to give up everything.
