Shish'd Tofu (Grilled Marinated Tofu - Vegan)

“This started off being an idea for a tofu shish kebab. Ended up more of a fusion ... a really tasty fusion! Sharp tang of lime with some sweet curry. Depending on your curry powder you may want to add extra heat with chili powder. You could also lace in some mushrooms, peppers and/or eggplant pretty nicely. Prep time does not include marinating time which should ideally be overnight or more.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the tofu and cut it into large cubes Press out some of the excess water by patting it dry or squeezing out by placing a plate on top of the tofu with something heavy on top. I use a clean tea towel and lightly press down.
  2. Mix everything else together in a mini blender or food processor. Adjust seasoning to your taste.
  3. Marinate the tofu in the mixture for at least a few hours, overnight is best.
  4. If you're using bamboo skewers soak them for 30 minutes to prevent burning on the grill. Thread the tofu onto skewers.
  5. Grill on medium heat, getting some nice grill marks on each side -- brushing with the excess 4marinade as you go. 3-4 minutes per side is usually enough.
