Grilled Teriyaki Tofu
I've always liked cooking with my Dad because (he'll tell you himself) he has a lot of knowledge and mostly good ideas about cooking (maybe I'll talk about his "panini brick" later). I had an especially good time trying to create acceptable vegan versions of what my Dad had already planned for dinner. This is the best one by far. I was so impressed with this photo that I showed it to everyone around me multiple times.
Here's the rundown:
Extra firm tofu, pressed and cubbed, then skewered. I used a great store bought Teriyaki sauce to marinade this badboy for maybe 45 minutes. I rotated the tofu to make sure the sauce was evenly coated. Actually, I turned it every 2 minutes because I was so excited! Thrown on the grill for 2 minutes on a side and, rad, it's done.
Accompanying this tofu is wild rice cooked in vegetable broth and diced Shiitake mushrooms, and steamed green beans.
And a picture of my Dad's cat, Topaz, because he's such a dreamboat:
