Jerk BBQ Tofu
The combination of jerk sauce and tofu work very well together, as well as the balsamic vinegar and olive oil with the mushrooms.
Marinade time - 1 to 4 hours
Tofu in water
(not vacuum packed)
Jerk sauce - very spicy - use as much as you can stand
Mushrooms (large, such as portabellos or shiitakes, preferably both)
Marinade for mushrooms (either commercial brand or use balsamic vinegar and olive oil)
Remove tofu from container. Drain and pat dry. Cut tofu in 1/2-inch thick slices. Place slices on large flat plate.
Pour jerk sauce until covered - make sure underside of tofu is covered. Pour a small amount of tamari (very salty so a little goes a long way) over the tofu.
Marinate 1 hr to 4 hours - the longer it marinates, the more intense the flavor.
Clean mushrooms - remove tip of portabello stems and all of shiitake stems. Slice portabellos in half (or thirds, depending on size - at least 1/2" to 1" thick). Do not slice shiitakes unless extremely large. Marinate mushrooms for about 1 hour.
BBQ about 5 to 7 minutes (until cooked but not burned). Use indoor or outdoor grill.
Can be eaten with rice or in a sandwich (crusty bread).
Recipe makes 6 servings.
