Broiled or Grilled Tofu Steaks with Vinaigrette √

Serves 4.

Note: Serve these “steaks” over shredded cabbage for a salad, or piled into a sandwich or wrapped into lavash or a large tortilla.

• 1/4 c. soy sauce

• 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

• 2 tsp. honey

• 1 small jalapeño chile, seeded and minced

• 1 (14-oz.) pkg. regular firm or extra-firm tofu, drained

• 1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro

• 1 lime, quartered


Preheat the grill or broiler to medium-high.

In a small dish, whisk together the soy sauce, oil, honey and chile. Brush some of the glaze on all sides of the tofu. Grill or broil the tofu until it is nicely browned, watching that it doesn’t burn, on each side, about 8 to 10 minutes total.

Drizzle the remaining glaze over the steaks before serving, garnish with the cilantro and serve with the lime wedges on the side.
