Grilled tofu with chimichurri on grilled bread
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
15 ounces firm tofu
4 slices whole-grain bread
For The Chimichurri:
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sherry vinegar (red wine vinegar works too)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes (optional)
Press tofu dry with a paper towel. Cut into 4 pieces. Press dry again.
Make the chimichurri: combine all ingredients in a bowl; reserve 1/2 cup.
Marinate tofu in remaining chimichurri, basting occasionally, for 1 hour.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium. Lightly brush bread on both sides with
chimichurri marinade. Grill until crisp, about 2 minutes per side.
Grill tofu until lightly charred, about 4 minutes per side.
Serve on bread with reserved chimichurri on top.
