Tofu for a cookout??
I'm planning a cookout sort of party, and have several vegetarians attending. In addition to things like oil and vinegar potato salad and grilled vegetables (onions, peppers, eggplant, zucchini etc) I was thinking of grilling firm tofu. Any advice on how to make it great would be welcome!
Your alternative, and my preferred way of doing vegan barbeque, is to grill the veggies that turn out so well on the grill, and toast the best buns you can find and serve as a vegan hoagie, with hummus or tehini to spread on the rolls.
And serve it with a fabulous salad. Like French lentils with diced onions and celery in a dijon vinaigrette made with top notch olive oil an wine vinegar.
1) if you live near a Tader Joe's use their TRADER JOE'S HIGH PROTEIN ORGANIC SUPER FIRM tofu. flavor is better than most and it WON'T FALL APART.
2) the sauces with which i've had success are:
a) teriyaki sauce made with Tamarii, agave syrup, chuncks of fresh ginger root, a little vinegar, and chunks of sliced raw garlic. be sure to brush with oil before putting on grill because neither the tofu nor the sauce has enough fat by themselves to endure a barbeque.
b) my favorite brand of barbeque sauce which is NOT TOO SUGARY: stubbs original recipe
c) a veryt spicy apricot/mustard/chile sauce
