Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup marinade (I used teriyaki sauce)
    1 block extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
    nonstick cooking spray or olive oil


Tofu tends to stick to the grill, so prevent that by making sure your grill is clean, not moving it around (only flip it once), and using a bit of oil or cooking spray on the surface.
I like to grill up several blocks at once and use the tofu on salads and in sandwiches throughout the week.


Slice the block of tofu into four pieces.
Marinate the tofu in your choice of sauce or marinade for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
Drain excess marinade from the tofu. Spritz the tofu on both sides with nonstick spray or brush on olive oil.
Grill for 6-7 minutes per side.
Serve immediately.

NOTE: You will only use about half the marinade, so I calculated the nutrition info accordingly.

Serving Size: 1 slice tofu (4 slices or 8 cubes per block)

    Folks , if you go to the bottom of the Nutritional Info Box and click the link to the by ingredient nutrition. You will get the answers to your questions. Including the fact that the Marinade is store-bought. - 5/16/13

    I love tofu! I store mine in the freezer and transfer it to the frig a day or two before cooking it. It is easier to use hands to squeeze out liquid and is sturdier and easier to handle. It also gives it a chewier texture. - 5/17/13

    What is the point without a recipe for the marinade? That pretty much reduces the nutrition info and calorie count to pure speculation, doesn't it? - 5/16/12
