Grilled Tofu and Edamame

Grilled Tofu and Edamame

Many people dislike tofu, but I just think they haven’t tried it the right way. Tofu does not have much flavour at all on its own. It takes on the flavours that it is paired with, or in this case marinated in. I use Bragg’s seasoning which is liquid aminos. It’s an alternative to tamari or soy sauce. It is made from soy protein using non-GMO soy beans. It has 16 amino acids which are needed for protein. Bragg’s seasoning is one of my favourite ways to season and I often give my veggies a squirt of it. Team it up with some sweet chilli sauce and you’ll never complain about tofu again.

My other favourite in this recipe is the edamame. I keep a bag of edamame beans in the freezer, they just need reheating and they’re ready to eat. The downside is you have to peel them. If you’re going to eat them straight away that’s not so much of I problem. I grab one put it between my teeth and squeeze out the peas. That’s not something you can do if you’re planning on serving the edamame to others! To be honest, popping the peas out is not that bad, just reheat more than you need so you can put one in the dish and one in your mouth.

So there you have it, tofu and edamame – two under-utilised ingredients that combine brilliantly in this flavoursome salad.

Notes

You can buy ready made seasoned tofu. It will save time marinating and grill up well, but won’t have the same flavour as this which really is super simple to put together.
Bragg’s All-Purpose Seasoning is also known as Liquid Aminos. It is a vegetable protein made from soybeans and water. I use it instead of soy sauce in a lot of dishes.
