I have to be honest here, I’m not a fan of tofu. I’m not the tofu kind of girl. Just look of how many cheese recipes I have on my blog.

How to Grill

When you’re grilling the skewers, either on stove-top or on a barbecue, be very careful with turning the skewers. Tofu is a very delicate ingredient that falls apart very easily, so you want to be careful when you start turning them around.  If you’re using a barbecue, place the skewers on a non-stick grilling mat before placing it on the barbecue. You can also use foil container, but mats are less wasteful and easier to manage for skewers. I also recommend using your hands to hold the skewers on the sticks and turn, if possible.
