Number of Servings: 4


    1 block of extra-firm tofu, well-drained
    1 cup plain Greek yogurt, low-fat/no-fat
    1 T. lemon juice
    1/2 large onion, diced
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced
    1-2 T grated ginger
    2 t. turmeric
    1 t. garam masala
    1 t. cayenne pepper
    1 t. paprika
    1/2 t. ground coriander seeds
    1/2 t. cumin powder or seeds

    Combine the yogurt, lemon juice, and spices for the marinade. Set aside.


After draining a container of extra-firm tofu, slice the tofu block lengthwise (still shaped like a thin deck of cards), marinate in the yogurt and spice combination for 2 hours to overnight.

Place the tofu slices under the broiler (low setting) in the toaster oven or counter-top convection oven about 4-5 minutes on both sides. Just watch it closely so that it does not burn. Otherwise, try grilling the tofu (in thicker slices). Either way...Enjoy!

Makes about 4-5 servings/slices of broiled tofu.
