In a large bowl, mix together the margarine, peanut butter, miso, nutritional yeast, and paprika to form a rich paste. If the mixture is too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time to thin it a bit to the desired consistency.
Preheat the oven to 370F/190C.
Add the bean curd "ribs" to the paste and mix together, coating them thoroughly. Place the "ribs" side by side on a large baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, turning them so that they bake evenly, until the bottoms are crisp and brown.
Remove from the oven and using a barbecue brush, apply the barbecue sauce to the "ribs." Return to the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more.
Makes 4 servings.
