Wow! This one should convert people to tofu! Very cheap to make, and a lot more filling than they look. And gorge all you like - they are really healthy! Use chicken for anyone not too keen on the tofu
These were delicious! They were gobbled up within minutes at my potluck supper! I followed the recipe exactly minus the jalapeno, I thought it had enough spice from the hot sriracha sauce alone. The tofu chunks stayed perfectly on the skewers. I used organic, sprouted super-firm tofu which is usually more durable than a lot of the regular non-sprouted tofu blocks I've bought in grocery stores. (It has a more meaty, less-smooth texture) If you use the right tofu it won't fall of the skewer.
The marinade was delicious, but the tofu didn't stay on the skewers. we had to do them separately on tin foil.
The sauce is delicious and can be used with other ingredients. Typically the first time I make a new recipe I follow the directions exactly then I tweek it the next time. With this recipe I left out the jalapeno so that I could have a base from which to determine if/how much jalapeno I'd use the next time. I also had some doubts about the tofu staying on the skewers so I doubled the sauce recipe and marinated shrimp in a separate container. I skewered the shrimp and veggies and used a grilling basket for the tofu and veggies. I also made one skewer with the tofu as per the recipe and the tofu fell off. This meal was an instant hit and the leftover portion served cold over spinach the next night was just a delicious. It's a simple meal to prepare and make.
My first experience EVER with tofu--was I ever impressed. So tasty! Highly recommend but be sure to use the firmest tofu or you will leave a portion of it on your grill!!
This recipe rocks! I am not a tofu lover but I liked it better than chicken in this recipe. My kids liked it too! I used a grill basket and cooked everything in it instead of skewers and served it over brown rice. Definitely making this one again!
Oh good Lord- yummy yummy yummy! I had plain Sriracha instead of garlic sriracha so I added a whole bunch of minced garlic. Used onion powder instead of fresh onion. After I tossed the tofu and veggies with the marinade I couldn't stop eating the raw tofu! The marinade is to die for! My carnivore husband went crazy over it too! Healthy and delicious.
Very nice marinade for tofu! I didn't have any veggies that would go on skewers, so I just cut the tofu into 1/2" slices. I marinated the slices and then cooked them on the grill. I followed the other user's suggestion of using plain Srirach sauch with chopped garlic added. Also, make sure to use extra firm tofu. To help it absorb the marinade, you can also "press" the tofu by putting it on a plate with a second plate on top. But something heavy (like a 1L bottle of water) on top and let it sit for 30 min or so.
