Tofu Master Minh Tsai shares his tips for easy grilling

What does being a Tofu Master entail exactly? Probably knowing everything there is to know about tofu, and making some of the more delicious and tasty soy products on the market. Minh Tsai, resident Tofu Master at Hodo Soy Beanery based in Oakland, Calif., shares his summer tofu grilling tips with us, plus recipes to get you started.

Tofu can be an intimidating ingredient for many to cook with, but when it comes to grilling, the firmer the better. Use a flavorful marinade, like the ginger-curry one shown in the video above, and simply cook the tofu for about five minutes on each side for gorgeous grill marks. But why listen to me? I'm clearly no Tofu Master. Instead, watch Tsai in the video above for his pro tips and check out the recipes below. (The Kale Hijiki Salad is a definite must-try.)

How to Cook Tofu That Actually Tastes Good

You've seen tofu. You've eaten tofu. And there's a good chance you've purchased tofu at the grocery store &mdash it's available just about everywhere now.

But, like most people, you probably have no idea what to do with it. Good news: Tofu is one of the easiest and healthiest foods to cook! The extremely mild taste goes with anything, and it's packed with quality protein &mdash making it a staple in many vegan and vegetarian diets.

You'll find a few different densities of tofu in stores, and they're all a bit different. Soft or silken tofu is custardy and therefore works well in soups, according to Susan Westmoreland, culinary director at the Good Housekeeping Institute. "Both medium and firm work well stir-fried, battered and crisped, baked and glazed," she says. "Firm does all of that plus grilling."

In order to turn this white brick of pure potential into dinner, it helps to know a few tricks and tips. Here are some basics to get you started, and some awesome recipes with tofu to try out.


How to Make Crispy Tofu in 5 Steps

This week on Basically, we’re diving deep into one of our favorite ingredients: tofu. To get all of this (and more) way before it hits the web, subscribe to our print magazine.

When I look at a block of tofu, all I see is POSSIBILITY. (Can’t say the same about looking at my Google calendar.) With a little ingenuity, a solid foundation of techniques, and a good recipe, tofu can be nearly anything I want it to be: simmered in a spicy stew like soondubu until soft and supple, warmed with dashi in a donabe, grilled and drizzled with chimichurri. And even though it might seem counterintuitive, since many types come packaged in water, tofu can also be “crispy” too.

I put crispy in quotation marks because we’re not talking fried chicken– or Pringles–level crispy here. Rather, “crispy” tofu is golden brown all over with a distinct crust. It holds onto sauce but doesn’t get lost in it. You’ll want to pop a cube into your mouth like a tater tot.

While tofu may not be born crispy—and, at times, may seem to resist all of your attempts to make it that way—follow these five steps and you can easily get it there. Here’s how to make crispy tofu:

If you’re pan-frying your tofu, you’re probably using a firm, extra-firm, or super-firm variety (rather than silken). These have already been pressed in its creation—that’s how the coagulated soy milk becomes a block—but most could use a little more assistance. Because the drier you can get your tofu, the crispier it will become. You could pat tofu with a lint-free kitchen towel or paper towel before you start cooking (see No. 2), but even better to press some of that excess water out using a heavy weight.

Expelling water compacts the block of tofu, which accomplishes two things: It creates a denser, heftier, and sturdier texture, making the pieces less likely to crumble to bits as you fry, stir, and flip, and it reduces spattering when the pieces hit hot oil.

You can press tofu by using a tofu press (I’m a well-documented tofu press advocate—it just makes my life the littlest bit easier) or MacGyvering a DIY method: Place your tofu on a lint-free kitchen towel atop a rimmed baking sheet or cutting board. Blanket it with another towel, then place a cutting board on top and stack on all of your heavy objects, like cast-iron pans, cans of tomatoes, sleeping cats. To speed up the process, cut your tofu into thinner planks or smaller cubes before you weigh it down. By increasing the surface area, you create more pathways for the water to exit. Aim for at least 20 minutes or as long as you can muster. (You can also press your tofu for several hours or overnight—I usually just stick my whole tofu press in the fridge in the morning so that it’s ready to go at dinnertime.)

Not every block of tofu that you plan to pan-fry needs to be pressed: If it’s dense and firm enough straight from the package, you may not need to press at all. This really depends on the brand—I find that high-protein tofu from producers like Hodo Foods and Phoenix Bean, which comes vacuum-sealed rather than sitting in liquid, often doesn’t need to be pressed. In that case, just move on to the next step.

Cut (or tear!) your tofu into its final shape. (Alternatively, you can fry the tofu in planks and rip or cut it into pieces after—fewer crispy edges, but less flipping! You make the call.) Dry off your sliced tofu on all sides using a lint-free kitchen towel or paper towels, then season with salt.

A light coating of cornstarch will absorb even more moisture from the tofu’s surface and contribute to a distinct coating. Sprinkle over the starch (potato starch, tapioca starch, and arrowroot all work too) a little bit at a time and toss the tofu, pressing gently so the starch adheres. At this point, you can also mix in ground spices and seasonings (ground garlic and onion, mustard powder, nutritional yeast, chili powder, black pepper) and/or, my favorite addition, panko, which gets crackly when fried.

Now that you’re ready to cook, pull out a nonstick skillet, which will prevent your tofu from refusing to dislodge when you go to turn it. A very well-seasoned cast-iron skillet or wok will also work.


Smoking Tofu: A beginners guide to smoking

So, first take a pack of King-size Rizlas. Ooops, wrong kind of smoking! Ignore that.

Underage Smokers

When I was growing up, smoked food meant a couple of things to me. Firstly, it meant smoked salmon, those luscious pink slithers of rich flavour, associations of good times and parties Christmas, family birthdays and the like. Also kippers, those stinky, smoked breakfast fish that my Dad ate and I also grew to love.

As a young lad on a family camping holiday in Suffolk, we once stopped at a small smokery, where I saw a cupboard full of herrings hung out, being smoked into kippers. We bought some, and had them for breakfast the next day, I still remember the overpowering charred wood flavour of these just-smoked fish.

But seeing that cupboard of fish pegged up like laundry taught me exactly what this smoking process was, how it worked and how kippers ended up tasting how they did. Since then, I’ve always held a repressed fascination for smoking as one of the fundamental processes in food preparation that I wanted to know more about.

So, here are the basics for you and the easiest way for you to try it at home.

Smoking: The Basics

There are two methods of smoking food hot-smoked, or cold-smoked.

Smoked salmon and kippers are cold smoked, which means they are cured with salt or brine, then smoked, so are still raw when finished. This is traditionally a food preservation technique, as the initial curing prolongs the shelf-life of the food.

Hot smoked foods are cooked during the smoking process and are more likely to be eaten straight after the smoking has been finished. This long, slow cooking process is very popular in the BBQ scene, where the BBQ is kept at a specific temperature to ensure the meat or fish is cooked thoroughly, but very slowly and over a long period of time, creating a soft, succulent finished product.

Hot Smoking - How it works

Cold Smoking - How it works

Gateway Foods

Although the most commonly available smoked foods are meat and fish, you can smoke anything you want. So, for your first go, I would suggest smoking vegetables, cheese or tofu. Once you move away from meat and fish, you’re removing the requirement to cook the food to kill bacteria, so don’t have to worry about keeping temperatures exact, you just need to keep the smoke moving. These all make a perfect gateway foods to try out smoking with, knowing you’re very unlikely to ruin, or undercook the end product.

Slow ‘n’ low

Tofu is a spongey mass that takes on flavour beautifully, so a great food to start with. This recipe makes ‘plain smoked’ tofu, like the stuff you can buy in packets off the shelf, and can be used as an ingredient in other dishes, or served alone.

As we are just trying to gently impart the smokey flavour into it, it’s better to keep the BBQ on the cooler side of things, as too much smoke, too quickly will result in a bitter, over-smoked flavour. You can always add more wood to create more smoke, but if you go too far, you can’t rewind. As BBQ fans say – “keep it slow ‘n’ low”.

You can also apply a marinade or rub to the tofu before it goes on the grill to add an extra dimension to it. BBQ style and Asian style marinades and rubs would taste fantastic, or get creative and have a play with whatever you’ve got in the cupboard.


Hot smoked tofu

Makes enough for 2 – 4 as a side
Takes about 2 hours 30 minutes
Uses 1 pot

PDF recipe card to download or print

Ingredients

400g plain tofu
Sesame oil
Foil tray, or piece of aluminium foil
Kettle BBQ, or BBQ with lid
Charcoal
A handful of smoking chips – lots of options available online, such as: Hickory BBQ Smoking Wood Chips

Directions

Prepare your BBQ by making a foil tray (see photos below) which is slightly larger than the area the tofu will occupy on the grill, and about 1 inch deep. Place it on the bed your charcoal goes on, at one end of the grill. Pile the other end of the grill high with charcoal, then light it.

Take the tofu block out of the packet and place between two chopping boards, with a weight on top and leave for 30 mins, tipping the fluids away occasionally. Once this is done, remove and cut into half inch thick slices and brush both sides with sesame oil.

Once the BBQ has burn down, so that the flames have stopped and it’s glowing, you’re ready to go. Fill the water bath with water and add a few smoking chips to the coals (just a few, NOT a massive handful, you can always add more!). Put the lid on the BBQ and make sure that the lid vent is over the tofu and wide open, to pull the smoke past the tofu. If there is a second vent on the lid, close it. I had the vents on the base half open. You’re aiming for a gentle outpouring of smoke, not a raging torrent.

Now, open the BBQ, put the tofu on the grill, directly over the water bath and replace the lid.

Periodically check that there is heat and a gentle trickle of smoke coming out of the BBQ. You can always add just a few more pieces of charcoal if it’s burning out, you will also need to add a few more wood chips if the smoke stops. I was adding some every 20 minutes or so. If the water bath dries up, add some more water to it.

After 45 minutes, turn the pieces and replace the lid, leave for another 45 mins, checking periodically.

Once removed, your smoked tofu is now ready to go!

Foil Tray Instructions.

Step 1.

Fold a piece of foil over on itself, so that it is double thickness. Fold all four sides inwards, about 1 inch from the edge.

Step 2.

Fold the sides up to form a tray, pinching the corners outwards diagonally.

Step 3.

Fold the pointed corners over on themselves, until they are tight against the corner of the tray.

Place it in position and then fill it, but only go about 1cm deep as the sides won’t hold much more!


Recipe Steps

1: Set up your grill for direct grilling and heat to medium-high.

2: Make the pickled onions: Combine the vinegar, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the onions and set aside. (Cover and refrigerate if not using right away.)

3: Make the rub: In a small bowl, combine the spices and mix with your fingers to eliminate any lumps. Set aside.

4: Arrange the tofu “steaks” in a single layer in a baking dish. Brush both sides with olive oil and season generously with the rub. Set aside.

5: Make the tahini sauce: Combine the tahini, garlic, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Whisk to combine. Add salt to taste. Thin to a pourable consistency with water (1 to 2 tablespoons). Whisk again, then transfer to a small serving bowl or cruet.

6: Sprinkle the watermelon wedges on both sides with the nigella seeds.

7: Brush and oil the grill grate with vegetable oil.

8: Grill the pita bread until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Grill the watermelon on both sides until marked with grill marks (you want the watermelon to stay crunchy on the inside).

9: Grill the tofu until marked with grill marks and warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into 3/8 inch pieces. Arrange on a platter along with the pita bread, scallions, cucumber, cornichon, and chiles.

10: To assemble the sandwiches, slice an edge off each pita bread and open the pocket. Add sliced tofu, scallions, cucumber, cornichon, and chiles as desired. Drizzle with the tahini sauce. Serve with the watermelon wedges.

Note: If the tofu seems especially wet, angle a cutting board by the sink (elevate the edge of the board with a folded dish towel), lay the tofu on the board, and lay gently place something heavy (like a cast iron skillet) on the tofu to press out some of the water. This will take about 30 minutes.


How To Make Grilled Tofu

You will find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a summary of the process to go along with the process photos.

  • Press two blocks of tofu, ideally using a tofu press, or if you don’t have a tofu press, by placing the tofu on a plate, with another plate on top of it, and then stacking something heavy on top of that, like a heavy pot or stack of books. Leave to press for 30 minutes.
  • When pressed, slice each block of tofu into 3 rectangular blocks, so that you have 6 rectangles.
  • Brush the tofu with a little sesame oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
  • Mix up your basting sauce by adding toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, maple syrup, hoisin sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger powder and cayenne pepper to a measuring jug.
  • Whisk it into a sauce.
  • Lightly brush a grill skillet with sesame oil and heat it for around 6 minutes on medium to high heat until hot.
  • Place three of the tofu blocks onto the hot skillet. They will stick to the skillet.
  • Grill the tofu for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes they will have grill lines and should release from the skillet easily without sticking.
  • Flip the tofu over and grill for 5 minutes on the other side.
  • Remove the tofu from the skillet and repeat with the remaining 3 tofu rectangles.
  • Then return the tofu to the skillet, 3 pieces at a time and lightly brush the basting sauce on both sides.
  • Serve over basmati rice and pour over the rest of the sauce. Top with chopped green onions and a sprinkle of white sesame seeds.

Make sure to firmly press your tofu before frying to remove any extra water. Frying the tofu gives it a crispy taste. Cut the tofu into cubes and sprinkle some corn starch over it. Toss it with some black pepper and sea salt before frying in hot oil. Fry until it is golden brown on both sides and keep flipping it in between.

Baking is a less oily alternative for frying, and it will also give a crispy outcome. Before baking, you must preheat the oven to around 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line the baking tray with a parchment sheet. It would help if you pressed the tofu before baking. Toss it up with a bit of salt, cornstarch, and black paper. Place it evenly on the baking tray and bake for approximately 30 minutes.

What Is Tofu?

Tofu is made of condensed soy milk. Most of us probably picture it in big white blocks, but there&rsquos also silken tofu, which is softer and doesn&rsquot maintain its shape as well. They each have their respective purposes. For instance, if you&rsquore making a stir-fry and want tiny cubes of tofu, block tofu is the way to go because it&rsquoll hold its shape. Silken tofu is better for sauces, smoothies, and soups. Both silken and block tofu also have sub-categories. Silken tofu comes soft or firm, while block tofu can be bought soft, medium, firm or extra firm. The firmer the tofu, the better it&rsquoll hold up to frying, grilling or sautéing.

There are plenty of reasons to eat tofu, from its healthy fats to its plant-based protein. But no matter why you eat it or how you cook it, tofu needs to be prepped before it&rsquos used&mdashif you want it to turn out crisp and delicious instead of soggy and limp, that is. Getting rid of as much moisture as possible is absolutely key, so let&rsquos start with the basics.
