Summer punch


  • 4 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • pinch ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 350g block very firm tofu (see tip below) cut into thick slices
  • ½ tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 courgettes, sliced horizontally into strips
  • 200g Tenderstem broccoli
  • black and white sesame seeds, to serve


  • STEP 1
Vegan pulled jackfruit

Mix the soy sauce, soft brown sugar, ginger and mirin with 1 tsp sesame oil and brush it all over the slices of tofu. Put them in a large, shallow dish and pour over any leftover marinade. Chill for at least 1 hr.

  • STEP 2

Heat the barbecue until the coals are glowing white, or heat a griddle pan. Mix the remaining sesame oil with the rapeseed oil and brush the courgette slices and broccoli. Barbecue (or griddle) them over the coals for 7-10 mins or until they are tender and then set aside and keep warm.

  • STEP 3
Minted green bean salad

Barbecue the tofu slices on both sides over the coals for 5 mins (or use the griddle) until they turn brown and go crisp at the edges. Serve the tofu on a bed of the veg with the remaining marinade and scatter over the sesame seeds.
