Famous Recipes – Caribbean Flavored Tofu
1 medium onion, chopped
3 scallions, chopped
2 Chiles, chopped, seeded
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbs 5 spice powder
1 tbs allspice
1 tbs coarse black pepper
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbs olive oil
3 pounds firm tofu
In a food processor, combine the onion, scallion, Chiles, garlic, five
spice powder, allspice, black pepper, thyme, nutmeg, and salt. Process into
a coarse paste.
With the machine still running, add the soy sauce and oil until
combined. Pour the marinade into a large shallow dish.
Slice the tofu blocks into 1/2 inch thick slabs (slice it lengthwise for
long slices). Add the tofu to the marinade and coat well. Cover and
refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
Fire up your barbecue grill. Grill the tofu on a well oiled grill.
Cook until browned on the outside and firm to touch (10-15 minutes). Make
sure not to flip too soon, or you may break the tofu. Transfer to a serving
platter and serve.
*You can also roast the tofu in an oven (on 500F) until well browned
