Honey Barbecue Tofu with Sweet Blueberry Sauce

I’m obsessed with this.

And this tofu. Whoever decided to add heat to fruit deserves a medal. An award. A giant hug from me.

I roasted some fruit this summer and it was super delicious. And this? This is crafty. I would never have thought that molasses and blueberries would be good together. Or blueberries and barbecue. But let me tell you people, it is.

I am all about eating fresh fruit. Fruit is like candy to me. Give me a container of blackberries and I am over the moon. A perfectly crisp fall apple? Happy camper.

This is where two completely strange things come together and work. French fries and milkshakes. Red heads and Spain. Gummy bears and shave ice [don’t ask – that was from a pregnant woman at Zack’s Yogurt].

Hello, blueberries and barbecue.
