SOL Cuisine - Tofu Ribs

I have to be honest -- as much as I love tofu, the name of "tofu ribs" doesn't sound that appetizing. And the picture on the front of SOL Cuisine's Tofu Ribs isn't all that great. That said, I wanted to try them anyway.

Following the directions, I thawed the ribs, then cooked them in a skillet sans the suggested oil. Overall, I would say they are just so-so. I made a sandwich with them using mixed greens on a whole wheat bun and found them to have very little flavor. The sauce the tofu strips were in was more like tomato paste than barbeque sauce and if you look at the ingredients, all it is made of is tomato paste, tamari, lemon juice, and some spices. So not a lot of barbeque flavor. After topping it with the Apinya Thai chili hot sauce, however, they were tastier.

If you are looking for a super quick meal, the tofu ribs are very convenient. Just be prepared to use several condiments to bring flavor to this dish.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that, in no way, influences my veracious opinion.
