MEDITERRANEAN GRILLED TOFU
Every summer I get so many requests for vegetarian or vegan grilling recipes.
This Mediterranean marinated grilled tofu is one of my favorites.
This Mediterranean-inspired tofu marinade is great because it goes well with so many other foods, from salad to grilled veggies.
Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper are classic flavors that work well together.
Mustard helps emulsify the marinade and adds even more flavor.
HOW TO GRILL TOFU
Tofu can be grilled just like anything else. Once it’s soaked up all those great marinade flavors, cook it over medium-high for about 5 minutes per side.
1 block high protein extra firm tofu
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp dried oregano
2 garlic cloves, minced
plenty of salt and pepper to taste
With a clean towel, dry the Tofu. Then cut the Tofu into ½ inch thick slices.
In a large shallow dish, mix the rest of the ingredients to make the marinade.
Add the tofu to the marinade. Let marinate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high. Place the tofu on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side, until dark grill marks appear.
