Vinegar and Tofu Don’t Match.

July 25, 2009

After millet failed to impress me the other day as a hot breakfast, I decided to give it a chance to redeem itself. This was after I’d found that the clip had come off the packet and about a quarter of the bag had spilt into the cereal cupboard. Millet really wasn’t in my good books, untill now.

Saturdays, weather permitting, is barbecue day. If we’re at my grandparent’s, we have it for lunch, if we’re home, we have it for dinner. I decided to try my hand at marinating some tofu and making some veggie kebabs, to be placed on a bed of millet. I thought it might make a good sub for couscous. It was moreĀ  soggy than couscous, obviously, but other than it fared well. Instead of making it up with soyamilk, as I did the other day, I made 35g of it up with 250ml water, but mixed in half a kallo low salt stock cube once the water had come to a boil. The result was a yummy millet dish, which could easily replace rice or sililar things as a side dish.

veggie kebabsThe veggies were so yummy. Roasted veg always are. There’s aubergine, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes and tofu on there. However, the tofu was ick. Yuckidy yuckidy yuck. I couldn’t eat it. My marinade sucked. I marnated the tofu overnight in a base of vinegar, mixed with a bit of vegan worcester sauce and some sugar. But the tofu just tasted so much like vinegar, it was euh. Next time, I’m going to find a marinade recipe, rather than making my own up. Don’t get me wrong, vinegar on chips is the best, but vinegar flavoured tofu? No, just no. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a tofu marinade?
