Serves: 2-4
Ingredients
  • 1 block extra firm tofu (firm tofu works too)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
Instructions
  1. The tofu should be pressed for at least 1 hour before using.
  2. Cut into thin slices and place back into the tofu container (if you still have it). Otherwise put it in a flat bottom container.
  3. Combine the remaining marinade ingredients in a jar, and shake until emulsified.
  4. Pour the marinade over the tofu, making sure every part of every slice is covered.
  5. Let the tofu marinate as long as possible, ideally an hour.
  6. DO NOT THROW AWAY THE MARINADE. YOU’LL USE IT AS A DRESSING FOR THE SLAW NEXT.
  7. Once the tofu has been marinated, grill it outside.
  8. Or you could bake at 400° for 35 minutes.
  9. My favorite way to cook it is to place it on a grill pan and broil for 5 minutes each side.
