Cilantro Lime Grilled Tofu
14-ounce block extra-firm tofu
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 bunch cilantro, washed and dried
1/3 cup fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/4 cup black or white sesame seeds
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
- Beginning at the short end, slice the block of tofu into 8 even rectangles. Lay the tofu on a baking sheet and sprinkle with tamari. Let sit, flipping once while preparing the pesto.
- Cut the stems off of the washed cilantro and puree the leaves in a blender or food processor with the fresh ginger, oils, sugar, salt, and lime juice. The resulting pesto should resemble a vibrant green smoothie.
- Lightly oil the grill. Using a metal spatula, place the tofu on the grill and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and grill for 2 minutes on the other side. Remove to a plate and let cool, then toss with the cilantro pesto and garnish with ½ cup sesame seeds, black or white. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until ready to use.
