IBS-Friendly Hoisin Tofu

IBS-Friendly Hoisin Tofu

In my opinion, tofu is an awesome substitute for meat, but only if it’s prepared right. After cooking with tofu for a while, you find out which texture works for you and which flavor-profile you like the most. Today I am sharing with you an IBS-friendly tofu dish that I think many of you will enjoy. In the past, I have made my favorite honey hoisin ribs and crispy tofu for my family. They enjoy the sweet and savory taste from the ribs, and I like the crispy texture of the extra firm tofu after its baked. So I was inspired to combine the two to make something that is “safe enough” for us IBS sufferers to eat. I stand by this dish and its super delicious! If you try this out, please let me know what you think. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
