Ingredients

  • Grilled Coleslaw Recipe
  • 1 pkg (454 g) firm tofu
  • 1 pkg (454 g) extra-firm tofu
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 sweet orange pepper
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper
  • 6 green onions (white parts only)
Jerk Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 cup bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 2 tablespoons fancy molasses
  • 4 teaspoons prepared jerk sauce
  • 2 teaspoons malt vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Method

Jerk Barbecue Sauce: In pan, bring tomatoes, molasses, jerk sauce, vinegar and thyme to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 1/2 cup (125 mL), 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, cut tofu into 24 cubes. In bowl, toss tofu, garlic, soy sauce and oil; let stand for 10 minutes.

Cut each red, orange and yellow pepper into 24 pieces; cut each onion in half. Thread vegetables and tofu alternately onto soaked wooden skewers; brush with sauce.

Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning and brushing with sauce, until vegetables are tender and slightly browned. Serve with coleslaw.
