Grilled Tofu

Submitted by: BIPOLARPRINCESS

Introduction

Mild-flavored tofu benefits from this intensely flavored lemon juice-and-garlic-based marinade. If you have the time, marinate the tofu early in the day (up to 8 hours before serving) so it can absorb all the flavors.

Ingredients

    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    14 ounces extra-firm tofu, preferably water-packed
    Mediterranean Chopped Salad (recipe follows)

Directions

1. Preheat grill.

2. Whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of this mixture for basting.

3. Drain and rinse tofu; pat dry. Cut the block crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices and place in a shallow glass dish. Add remaining marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or for up to 8 hours.

4. Meanwhile, make Mediterranean Chopped Salad.

5. Lightly oil the grill rack (hold a piece of oil-soaked paper towel with tongs and rub it over the grate). Drain the tofu, discarding marinade. Grill the tofu over medium-high heat, basting occasionally with reserved lemon juice mixture, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side (see Tip). Serve immediately, topped with the salad.

TIP: To make attractive grill marks on the tofu, rotate it 90° halfway through grilling for a cross-hatch pattern.
