Recipe

If you love cilantro, this dish is definitely for you. Full of cilantro, lime juice, and garlic with a touch of sweetness and touch of heat - you'll want to drizzle this marinade on everything. And it is the perfect match for tofu since it adds a ton of flavor to what can sometimes be a bland ingredient. It's probably my favorite way to eat tofu and that's says a lot since I make a lot of tofu dishes.

  2. Combine the remaining ingredients. Marinate the tofu in this mixture for at least 2 hours, ideally overnight, in the fridge.
  3. When ready to grill, remove the tofu from the marinade, letting excess drip off. Grill for 5-6 minutes per side. Serve with excess marinade.
