    rsarahl's Note:

    Chimichurri is a potent, hot and garlicky South American sauce that is usually served with grilled meats. Try it here with grilled tofu for a fiesty vegetarian dish that is sure to please. Make extra sauce and store it in the fridge for up to a month in an airtight container. It is great marinade for chicken, pairs nicely with any grilled meat and works well as a topping for baked fish.

      Great tofu recipe. I made this over the weekend for a vegetarian Atkins dieter guest. The tofu tasted great with the seasonings. My kids even ate it! Definately will add to my regular menu.

      The sauce was the best part and makes the meal. I used rice wine vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar and enjoyed the end result. I drained the tofu under a weighted plate for an hour prior to making the dish and grilled it on the George Foreman. It was good but not great.
