Peel and thinly slice the shallots and carrots. Trim and thinly slice the scallions. Thinly slice the collard green stems and roughly chop the leaves. Drain the tofu, pat dry with paper towels, and cut into 1 inch cubes.
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp vegetable oil. Once hot, add the cubed tofu (working in batches if necessary) and a pinch of salt and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned in places, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the BBQ sauce and just 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar, and cook until sticky and browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the barbecue tofu to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Place a medium saucepan over medium heat with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Add the sliced shallots and a pinch of salt and cook until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the corn kernels, and cook until hot, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the almond milk, ½ cup water, nutritional yeast, and cornstarch; whisk until combined. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the corn is creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in just half the sliced scallions.
Return the large nonstick skillet to medium heat with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Once hot, add the sliced carrots and cook until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the collard green stems and leaves and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook until wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining apple cider vinegar and ¾ cup water and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Divide the southern collard greens between large bowls. Top with and creamed corn and barbecue tofu. Sprinkle with remaining scallions. Dig in!
