Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a baking dish, coat tofu completely with barbeque sauce. Bake for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix flour with garlic, salt and pepper on a shallow plate. Coat each slice of polenta with flour mixture. Heat olive oil over medium low heat and lightly sauté polenta slices until lightly golden, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel and drain. To serve, place 3 slices of polenta on a plate. Top with 2 slices of tofu and garnish with parsley.
