If you tend to think of meat when it comes to grilling, here’s a recipe that will help you consider plant-based alternatives.
Vancouver’s Tractor at Home is providing this recipe for chili lime tofu that draws upon the sweet, salty, and spicy flavours of Southeast Asian cuisine.
Chili Lime Tofu
2 packages organic firm tofu
75 grams roasted garlic
¼ cup avocado oil (or any other neutral oil you have on hand)
1.5 tablespoons sambal oelek chili paste
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 tablespoons agave
¾ cup lime juice
1.5 tablespoons tamari
Remove tofu from package and drain excess water.
Place tofu blocks on paper towels or a clean tea towel and gently squeeze out extra moisture.
Cut each block of tofu into 4 even slices.
Make the marinade by blending all remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Lay tofu slices in an even layer in a container. Cover with marinade, lid, and place in fridge overnight.
To serve: preheat grill or grill pan until hot.
Grill tofu on both sides until crispy and warmed through. Enjoy!
