Drain a 14- to 16-oz. pkg. extra-firm water-packed tofu. Fold two paper towels into quarters. On a plate layer tofu between paper towels. Weight it down by placing a second plate on top and adding a pot or a few unopened cans of food to the plate. Let stand 30 minutes, replacing paper towels if they get completely wet.
If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes. When adding the tofu pieces to the skewers, insert the skewers lengthwise.
Or heat a greased grill pan or griddle over medium. Grill skewers 6 to 8 minutes or until tofu is golden and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally.
