Beer Barbecue Tofu

Beer Barbecued Tofu

1 package extra firm tofu

1/2 bottle good quality beer

1/3 cup (HFC free) barbecue sauce

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1/2 sweet onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

Cut the tofu into eight slices and place on top of several dish towels.  Wrap them up and stack a few books on top.  Let it sit there for about 30 minutes.

Place the beer, ginger, onion, barbecue sauce and garlic in a glass dish.  Add the tofu, turning to cover with the sauce, and marinate for at least 1 1/2 hours in the refrigerator.  

On a hot, preheated grill, use some tongs to grease your grill grate very well with a paper towel soaked in oil.  Place your tofu on the grill and let it sit there, without moving it, for about 7 minutes. Brush the tofu with the marinade while it's grilling.  Flip (regreasing the grill if necessary) and grill for an additional 7 minutes- brushing with the marinade. 

My husband threw the onions that were in the marinade on the grill to go along with the tofu and they were fantastic served on the side.
