A highly flavored marinade, this adds exciting flavor to grilled tofu, tempeh, and seitan and any vegetables that you wish to give an Oriental flavor on the grill--eggplant, broccoli, string beans, scallions, carrots, and mushrooms.
1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
1/4 cup sake or white wine
2 tablespoons light olive oil
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 to 2 cloves crushed or minced garlic
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- Combine all the ingredients in a small container. Let stand until the sugar is dissolved. When brushing on foods, swirl the mixture often with the brush to keep combined.
Makes about 1 cup.
