• STEP 1

    Mix the soy sauce, soft brown sugar, ginger and mirin with 1 tsp sesame oil and brush it all over the slices of tofu. Put them in a large, shallow dish and pour over any leftover marinade. Chill for at least 1 hr.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the barbecue until the coals are glowing white, or heat a griddle pan. Mix the remaining sesame oil with the rapeseed oil and brush the courgette slices and broccoli. Barbecue (or griddle) them over the coals for 7-10 mins or until they are tender and then set aside and keep warm.

  • STEP 3

    Barbecue the tofu slices on both sides over the coals for 5 mins (or use the griddle) until they turn brown and go crisp at the edges. Serve the tofu on a bed of the veg with the remaining marinade and scatter over the sesame seeds.


Firm tofu should be sliceable - silken firm is not firm enough. You can squeeze out the moisture by putting it in a dish and resting a plate or small board on top of it for a couple of hours.
