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.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut tofu block in half to get 2 pieces of 1/2 inch tofu from the 1 inch block.
- 2With the 2 pieces still together, slice them both in half width wise, then cut the halves in half to get 8 1/2 inch thick pieces.
- 3Blot the cut tofu dry between paper towels.
- 4In a food processor or spice mill, grind the oregano, parsley, garlic, and pepper flakes until finely minced.
- 5Add the vinegar and 1 tbsp oil to the spice mixture and blend until a rough sauce forms.
- 6Transfer spice mixture to a bowl and season with salt to taste.
- 7Brush tofu slices with remaining tbsp of olive oil, then grill over medium flame or in a grill pan on medium high heat for about 5 minutes per side.
- 8Plate the tofu slices after grilling and spoon sauce over grilled pieces just before serving.
