Ginger-Sesame Grilled Tofu Steaks

Ginger-Sesame Grilled Tofu Steaks

All you need to complete this meal is a side of steamed snow peas, sugar snap peas, or asparagus. Draining the tofu on paper towels helps it absorb more marinade and ensures maximum flavor when it hits the grill.

Yield: 4 servings



•  1 pound reduced-fat extrafirm water-packed tofu, drained and cut crosswise into 8 slices

•  2/3 cup Ginger-Sesame Vinaigrette

•  1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro

•  1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

•  8 lime slices

•  Cooking spray

•  2 cups hot cooked short-grain white rice


1.  Place tofu slices on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 20 minutes, pressing down occasionally. Combine Ginger-Sesame Vinaigrette, cilantro, and soy sauce in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Remove 1/4 cup cilantro mixture; set aside. Add tofu to dish in a single layer, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

2.  Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

3.  Add lime slices to marinade, turning to coat. Remove tofu and lime slices from marinade, reserving marinade. Place tofu and lime slices on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until browned and thoroughly heated, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Spoon 1/2 cup rice onto each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 2 tofu slices and 2 lime slices; drizzle each serving with 1 tablespoon reserved cilantro mixture.
