“Flavorful tofu, perfect for summer grilling. This is my absolute favorite way to eat tofu. The marinade is delicious and extremely flavorful. Serve with grilled vegetables or in a tortilla.” - by Smitty
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place the block of tofu onto a plate and place another plate on top. Set a 3 to 5 pound weight on top (a container filled with water works well). Press the tofu for 20 to 30 minutes, then drain off and discard the accumulated liquid. Slice the tofu lengthwise into 4 thick slabs or cut into cubes and thread on skewers. Place tofu pieces or skewers on a plate.
- Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, garlic, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Brush the tofu with the marinade. Cover the plate with plastic wrap, and marinate tofu in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Grill the tofu until almost blackened in spots, brushing occasionally with the marinade, about 10 to 15 minutes.

"Great recipe, just made it tonight. I used only about 1/8 cup lime juice (the concentrated kind), and even so the tofu came out a bit too sour. So maybe this recipe calls for 1/4 cup fresh lime juice?..." See more Anyway, use the lime juice conservatively. Same goes for cayenne. I love spicy, so I don't mind the kick, but if you aren't a fan, reducing the cayenne to 1/8 tspn might be good. Otherwise, the dish is super flavorful and delish. Very summery."
"I marinated with halfed cherry tomatoes as well as the tofu chunks, put them on skewers and grilled. Perfect!..." See more"
