Vegan Jamaican Jerk Tofu

RECIPE BY LEEKS N BEETS

Packed with flavour and spice in each bite, these are best served on a bed of fragrant coconut rice and sliced avocado.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 16 oz block super firm tofu, cut into triangular wedges

  • 3 scallions, roughly chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 inch knob of ginger, minced/shredded

  • 1-2 habanero peppers, seeded 

  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp blackstrap molasses

  • 2 tbsp agave

  • 2 tbsp neutral oil

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp garam masala

  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp all spice

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

  • 2 tsp sea salt

  • oil, for cooking

METHOD
  1. In a high speed blender combine together all the ingredients aside from the tofu and pulse till smooth.

  2. Place the tofu in a container with an airtight lid then pour the marinade in, cover, and gently shake to make sure all the tofu is coated in the marinade. Refrigerate at least 1 hr, preferably 3-4 or overnight.

  3. Heat up a grill or skillet (I used a cast iron skillet), spray with oil then add the tofu. Cook until nice and golden on both sides. Enjoy!
