Large Non-Stick Pan
Shallow Dish
Aluminum Foil
Measuring Spoons
Baking Sheet
Measuring Cups
Small Bowl


  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • While pan heats, pat tofu dry with paper towels. Cut tofu in half parallel to the cutting board. (NOTE: You will have two square tofu steaks per block.) Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add tofu and half the Cream Sauce Spice Blend to a shallow dish, then toss to coat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then tofu. Sear, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. Transfer tofu to a plate. Spoon 1 tbsp BBQ sauce over each tofu steak. Cover to keep warm.
Broil peppers
  • Meanwhile, core, then cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping hot peppers!)
  • Add peppers and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to the baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Broil peppers in the middle of the oven, until peppers are lightly charred, 5-7 min.
Cook beans
  • Meanwhile, heat the same pan (from step 1) over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil then mirepoix. Cook, stirring often, until golden and beginning to soften, 1-2 min. Sprinkle remaining Cream Sauce Spice Blend over top, then stir to coat.
  • Add beans along with liquid, stock powder, tomato sauce base, remaining BBQ sauce, 1/3 cup (2/3 cup) water and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar.
  • Bring to a boil over high, then reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-4 min.
  • Stir peppers into the pan with beans.
  • Cut ciabatta into 1/2-inch-wide slices lengthwise.
  • Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter to a small microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave, 30 sec.
Make toasties
  • Discard aluminum foil, then arrange ciabatta slices on the same baking sheet used to broil peppers. Spoon melted butter over ciabatta slices. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Broil in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 1-2 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on toasties so they don't burn!)
Finish and serve
  • Meanwhile, add spinach to the pan with beans. Stir until spinach wilts, 30 sec.
  • Thinly slice tofu.
  • Divide beans and tofu between bowls.
  • Serve toasties alongside for dipping.
