BBQ "Ribs"

It's completely and totally wonderful.
My modifications are in [].

This is absolutely super.
Slightly modified from an excellent but not well-known vegetarian (primarily vegan) cookbook:
_Kathy Cooks Naturally_, by Kathy Hoshijo.

8-10 oz dried yuba
(beancurd sheets, found in Chinese groceries)
[I use yuba sticks instead of
1/4 cup nutritional yeastflakes
1/4 cup smooth peanutbutter (or other nut butter)
[I've tried this with peanut butter and
2 T dark miso
1 T melted margarine
1 T water
[I usea lot more water, so that the mixture is more the
2 T paprika
2 cup BBQ sauce
(RonPickarski's sauce from _Eco-Cuisine_ is to die for)

Soak yuba in water 4-6 hours.
Cut off and discard any pieces that remain hard.

Drain, cut into 4-6" lengths.
Squeeze out as much water as you can.
Mix next 6 ingredients in a bowl.
Add yuba sticks, coating well.
Lay yuba sticks right up against each other on a greased cookie sheet one layer thick.
Bake at 350F for 25 minutes, until bottoms are crisp and browned.
Remove from oven, mix with 2 cups BBQ sauce.
Return to cookie sheet (in one layer) and bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes.
