Grilled Asian Tofu is quick, light, and healthy. Whip up this vegetarian dinner for two tonight!
1 package extra firm tofu, pressed & sliced into 6 pieces
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons water
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon agave nectar (or honey)
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Sprinkle red pepper flakes
Combine all ingredients and marinate tofu slices for 10 minutes. Spray grilling surface with non-stick spray and grill for 3-4 minutes a side. Serve!
Oh. Baby. It’s been way too long since I last had tofu and this was the perfect way to bring it back – GRILLED! Well, sort of. You’ll see!
I started by marinating my tofu, (pressed in my handy dandy tofu press!) letting it soak up all the wonderful flavors for ~5 minutes a side.
Yum, yum, YUM!
Then I whipped this bad boy out – my Griddler! I totally forgot I had it!
I was planning on using the outdoor grill before I remembered the griddler, and was glad to make the switch because today’s a scorcher.
I pressed and “grilled” my tofu for about 7-8 minutes.
Ahhh – look at those grill marks! All of the presentation, but none of the sweating that comes along with standing around a hot grill in the sun. That’s something I can get into. ;)
Placed over a bed of brown rice and baby spinach sautéed in the remaining tofu marinade (there was ~1 teaspoon that the tofu hadn’t soaked up, which ended up being the perfect amount.)
Love-love-loving this dish. SO much! It was salty, and a tiny bit sweet – just the way I like it.
I’m going to go ahead and declare this a dish that even tofu haters might like. Try it out on someone who usually turnes their noses up, and let me know how it goes!
