Preparation steps

1.
Cut well pressed tofu into 1 1/2-inch cubes, and place in a shallow dish.
2.
In a small bowl, combine tamari, rice wine vinegar, ginger, sesame oil and garlic. Pour mixture over the tofu and stir to thoroughly coat. Refrigerate and marinate at least 3 hours, or overnight.
3.
Prepare grill for direct grilling and preheat to medium-high heat.
4.
Remove tofu from the marinade and drain well, reserving marinade. Toss prepared vegetables in the reserved marinade. Thread the tofu and vegetables onto the skewers. Brush kebabs with any remaining marinade.
5.
Brush grill grate with oil. Grill kebabs for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until tofu is golden brown and vegetables are tender.
