      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!
