Tofu, tofu, on the barbeque

PS - do you prefer to spell barbeque with a Q or with a C?

Grilled tofu

We tried grilling some tofu on our NEW BARBEQUE YAY the other day. Doesn't this look tasty?

We bought regular firm tofu, and also a brand of sesame-ginger tofu to try. I loved the sesame-ginger, it had a nice spicy ginger kick and seasamy nutty flavour.

I followed the instructions here at Vegetarian.About.com: freezing, pressing, then marinating the tofu. I made one marinade with BBQ sauce, honey, and chili-garlic sauce, and another with soy sauce and rice vinegar.

Well, I think 5 min per side was a little too long, or the grill was a little too hot, as there were some overly burnt edges. Shhh don't tell, it was my first attempt!

Sean pointed out the tofu would be very tasty as cubes on a skewer with veggies. Oh yes we'll have to try that :)
