I have been waiting two years for this moment. The first time I read Vegan with a Vegneance, I immediately wanted to make the BBQ Pomegranate Tofu. Alas, I couldn't find Pomegranate Molasses anywhere. Determined, I started to scour the stores for it. I have lived in two different states in the US and one province in Canada and still, no luck.
Then, one magical day that we'll call Tuesday I was putzing around the market near my apartment. What to my wandering eyes should appear but a bottle of pomegranate molasses. Hells yeah! The market has started to carry all sorts of new things, this being one of them. I think I actually let out a little squeal of joy when I saw this bottle hanging out on the bottom shelf with the honey and sugar and molasses.
I was planning on making something else for dinner that night, but screw that, I had waited long enough for this tofu. I swear I was hugging the bottle as I walked over to the veggies to get something to go with it.
I was not disappointed. This was so easy to make, and actually rather fast since you can be doing so many other things while the tofu is in the oven. I expected it to be a bit spicier and more savory than it was. I think I'll add a bit more hot sauce or maybe some chopped chiles next time I make this. I ended up with a ton of leftover sauce. I'm sure I'll find something interesting to make with it. I've never made my own barbeque sauce before, and I have to admit, that was kinda cool.
