“I saw Brown Sugar Grilled Salmon on the front page and thought it looked delicious for a non-veg entree! Here's how to grill up some tofu vegan style! I use a George Foreman grill for this, I'm sure an outdoor grill wouldn't be much different. For those new to grilling and cooking with tofu, check out Easy-As-1-2-3 Versatile Grilled Tofu Chunks or Sandwich Slices. cook/prep time doesn't account for the freezing/marinating.”
8 slices

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the tofu very well and press out all the excess water using the plate press method or drying out in the microwave.
  2. I get about 8-9 width-wise slices per block, cut out about eight 1/2" thick pieces then place into a tossing bowl.
  3. Mix the other ingredients together to make a marinade and pour over the tofu pieces, tossing well to coat.
  4. Lay the tofu pieces out into a flat dish/container so they don't overlap, and freeze for about 40-60 minutes for both the marinade to soak in and the tofu to have a nice fish-like texture when it grills.
  5. Grill on each side for about 5-10 minutes or until that nice browned grilled look comes into place.
