BBQ Tofu Sandwich with Spicy Coleslaw

BY : PUBLISHED : January 14th, 2013 UPDATED: August 25th, 2021

This is a fun sandwich to make because you can play with the taste.  If you want it sweeter, use a sweet BBQ sauce.  If you want it more spicy, add more hot sauce.  The coleslaw gives the sandwich a spicy crunch and the pickle mixes great with the heat. Enjoy!
