This easy Grilled Tofu is marinated with soy sauce, maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic, and fresh herbs for tons of flavor. This vegan dish is perfect for topping your favorite salads, wraps, and grain bowls. Grilled to perfection in under 10 minutes!
What you need:
- 24 oz extra firm tofu (2 blocks)
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 3 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, minced (or other herbs)
- 1/16 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Cut the tofu into 1/2 thick slices. Use a tofu press to press out the liquid. You can also wrap the tofu slices in a towel and place something heavy on top to press out the extar moisture. Let sit for 15 minutes.
Combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, maple syrup, garlic, cilantro, and red pepper flakes (if using) in small container.
Add the pressed tofu to the marinade and let sit for 15-30 minutes, longer if you have time.
Make sure the grill is clean and consider lighting oiling the grates so the tofu doesn’t stick. Remove the tofu from the marinade, brushing off any garlic or cilantro since it will burn. Save the marinade. Grill over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes per side until brown grill marks have formed and the tofu gets slightly crispy on the outside.
Serve with remaining marinade on top and season with salt and pepper if needed.
