  • 1
    Heat grill. Gently press tofu cubes between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • 2
    Brush grill rack lightly with oil.
  • 3
    Alternately thread tofu, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper and zucchini onto four 12 to 14-inch metal skewers. Spray kabobs on all sides with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 4
    When ready to grill, place kabobs on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, carefully turning occasionally. Brush with teriyaki baste and glaze; cook an additional 1 to 3 minutes or until glaze is set, turning to cook all sides. Watch carefully to prevent glaze from burning.

Expert Tips

  • Teriyaki sauce is available in thin or thick consistencies. For this recipe, use the thick, shiny teriyaki glaze.
  • Silken tofu, which is sold in shelf-stable packages, has a custard-like texture. Firm tofu, stocked in a refrigerated case in the produce section of the grocery store, has a sponge-like texture. Firm tofu is packed in brine that is drained and discarded. For this recipe, use firm tofu packed in brine.
  • Turn these kabobs gently to keep the tender tofu intact.
  • Serve these kabobs with rice, sesame breadsticks and a lettuce, cucumber and mandarin orange salad tossed with sweet-sour vinaigrette. Lemon sorbet makes a light and refreshing finale.
