Grilling for Vegans

A friend invited us over to her place for a BBQ and asked me if I could make something extra for our vegetarian friend who was joining us. So, seeing how it was going to be a BBQ I decided to keep with the theme of grilling and made these grilled tofu steaks.

Grilled Tofu Steak
Serves 4 as in appetizer

250g firm tofu, cut into about 2cm thick
4 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger root
4 spring onions, sliced at an angle

Place the tofu on a clean tea towel, cover with another clean tea towel and place 2 chopping boards on top to press lightly. Leave at least for 30 minutes.

Combine the sake, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and salt to taste in a bowl, then add tofu. Scatter over the spring onions and marinate for 45 minutes, tossing occasionally. Remove the tofu from the marinade, shaking off the spring onions and reserving the excess marinade.

Heat a griddle until smoking and lightly oil it. Place the tofu on the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Plate up the tofu, spoon over the reserved marinade and serve.

Oh, that sounds really simple and fuss-free. Will need to try it someday.
