This makes a refreshing and flavorful sauce for tofu and vegetables, perfect for a hot, summer day. You’ll need to freeze regular or firm tofu for at least one week. Freezing tofu changes the texture to a meaty sponge that will suck up whatever sauces you marinate it in.
1 pound regular or firm tofu (water-packed), frozen for at least one week or longer
Red bell peppers, onions, zucchini, or whatever grilling vegetables you like
1. Defrost the tofu, and slice into 1/2 inch slabs. Carefully squeeze each slab between the palms of your hands to extract as much water as possible. Make the marinade below and follow instructions for marinating and grilling.
2 cups mangoes, either frozen and thawed, or fresh
6 ounces apple juice concentrate
1/3 cups fresh lime juice
2 Thai chilis
3 to 4” of lemon grass stalk
A chunk of ginger root
1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and marinate the tofu in it for 24 hours before grilling. You can grill the tofu slices on their own, or cut them into cubes and skewer them with your vegetables of choice.
2. When you’re ready to grill, lightly brush the grill with oil, then place the tofu or skewers on it, grilling 4 to 5 minutes on each side until beautiful grill marks are formed.
Brush a bit more of the marinade on them once they come off of the grill to add another burst of flavor.
