Description

These tofu skewers are the best way to make everybody enjoy tofu. Perfect for BBQ,  you can also bake them if you prefer.  I suggest using extra-firm tofu and not overcooking it.



Ingredients

450 g extra firm tofu, diced
1/4 cup soy sauce (60 ml)
1/4 cup maple syrup (60 ml)
1 tbsp liquid smoke (or toasted sesame oil)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions

1
In a bowl, combine soy sauce, maple syrup, liquid smoke and chopped garlic.

Add the tofu and let marinate in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes, or cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Drain the marinade into a saucepan, bring to boil and simmer until it thickens.

Thread the cubes of tofu onto skewers.
