No-Fail Grilled Tofu
IntroductionTofu is the little black dress of veg proteins. Dress it up, dress it down, grill it up! Tofu is the little black dress of veg proteins. Dress it up, dress it down, grill it up!
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.
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.
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)
