Cooking with barbeque sauce

Anyone have ways they like to use barbeque sauce (sweet kind) for vegetarian cooking?
Broiling or grilling tofu or tempeh are the only things I've come up with.

    How timely! I just viewed a slide show at the Eatingwell.com website that had a dozen ways to use BBQ sauce. There were a few vegetarian options and a few that are easily converted to be vegetarian.

      Always good in bean dishes.

        i guess it's not really cooking with it if you use it instead of ketchup for fries???

          doesn't quite count as cooking, but BBQ sauce on a Quorn burger is quite tasty.

            Mix with some mustard and brush on eggplant steaks, then grill.

            Add to collard greens along with some smoked tempeh or fakin' bacon.

            If not vegan, put some goat cheese on top of anything edible and add a little bit of bbq sauce mixed with hot sauce

              Top Spaghetti with it!

                One more: If you saute' some crumbled tempeh with onions and green peppers then add some bbq sauce and some tomato sauce, it makes for a pretty convincing sloppy joe filling.

                  I saw a recipe recently which is a take on bbq pulled pork. It called for juilianned mushrooms and onions cooked down into a bbq sauce. It sounds interesting but I haven't tried it yet though.
