Cooking Directions

Soak skewers in filled water container.

  • Drain and dry the block of tofu with paper towels. Wrap the block of tofu in a thick layer of paper towels and place on a plate. Lay another flat-bottomed plate (or small cutting board) on top of the tofu and place a can or two of beans on the plate/cutting board to weigh down the tofu, which will help press excess moisture from it. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the maple syrup, mustard, cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Cut the tofu into 1-inch thick slices, then cut again into 1-inch cubes. Place the tofu in the maple-mustard sauce and toss to coat the tofu. Cover and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour, tossing occasionally.
  • Thread the tofu on wooden skewers that have been soaked beforehand.
  • Lightly brush the grates of your gas grill with oil. Heat the grill flames over medium heat. Once hot, add the tofu skewers and grill until browned and crispy, 12 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally to brown them on all sides. Brush the skewers liberally with any remaining maple-mustard sauce in the last 5 minutes of grilling.
