Barbecue Tofu with Marinade

It's barbecue season! That means it's time to find the best vegan barbecue recipes - and this marinade for tofu is one of the most delicious. Let the tofu soak overnight in the marinade for the best grilled tofu.

Ginger and Sesame Marinade for Tofu

Mix 3 tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of sesame oil, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tbsp grated ginger and 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic.

Preparing Tofu for Marinade

Use firm or extra-firm tofu - soft tofu falls apart on the grill. If you have time, freeze the tofu overnight and then defrost it. Freeze-thawing tofu changes the texture, making it spongy so that it takes up the marinade better. Leave the tofu in the marinade for as long as possible - the longer the tofu marinades, the better it will taste.

How to Barbecue Tofu

Barbecuing tofu requires a gentle touch. Turn it gently using a flat metal spatula that you can slide underneath to flip the tofu over. Once the barbecue is hot, the tofu will cook in a few minutes. It's ready once the tofu is slightly crunchy on the outside. The inside will be beautifully soft and intensely flavored.

Serve with grilled veggies, fresh green salad, barbecued sweet potatoes, and sunshine!
