INGREDIENTS

  • 1 package Firm Tofu
  • 2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce (Wheat-free)
  • 1 Tbsp. first Pressed Sesame Oil

PREPARATION

Cut tofu in half and then into ½ inch thick slices. Then place onto a cooling rack to drain for 1 hour with a cookie sheet on top with a bit of weight (this keeps the tofu firm and able to absorb flavor better). When ready, place tofu in a shallow dish with 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon sesame oil, coat both sides and let stand. While the tofu is marinating heat the grill and add the tofu on one layer and grill both sides – about a total of 5-6 minutes. Take off and let rest on a plate.

Combine this with any veggie or your choice for a healthy, easy, inexpensive and delicious summer BBQ meal.

 

Add the garlic, ginger and lemongrass to the hot oil and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add all the vegetables to the skillet and sauté for 1 minute then add the coconut milk and soy sauce then turn up the heat to high bringing to a boil, cook uncovered for about 4 minutes until the vegetables are softer. Take the vegetables out and set into a bowl and reduce the sauce until about ¾ of a cup. Then stir in the lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt to taste. Pour over the vegetables and tofu then sprinkle with almonds and some fresh cilantro and serve.
