Tofu is an often overlooked protein source that is great for vegetarian and meat eaters both. It is packed with protein, very low in carbohydrates, and will take on almost any flavor you add to it. The key is a great marinade, in this case fresh herbs and lemon juice, and cooking it until it is nice and crispy on the outside, For this recipe we use the broiler, but the grill would work great as well.

Add the parsley, basil, cilantro, garlic, oil, salt, pepper, and lemon to a food processor to create a marinade.
Cut the tofu into cubes. Add to 3/4 of the marinade and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Broil the tofu for about 3-5 minutes per side. Flip once they are browned, about 3-5 minutes and cook on other side. This is also great on the grill.
