Chipotle Tofu BBQ Steaks

Smoldering BBQ flavours give this summery plant-powered trio a boost. Seared tofu steaks roast alongside crispy potato wedges, ideal for dunking in the chipotle-spiked homemade barbecue sauce. A blend of baby greens and BBQ corn nuts bring a welcome crunch to this warm weather dish.
