Teriyaki Grilled Tofu
photo by TattooedMamaof2
- Ready In:
- Coat grill rack throughly with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium (300° to 350 ° F). Cut tofu into slices 1/2-inch thick. Place slices in a single layer in a shallow glass dish.
- In a small bowl combine teriyaki sauce, honey, oil, garlic, ginger, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour teriyaki mixture over tofu and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
- After removing the tofu from the marinade, place the leftover marinade into a sauce pan. Cook over high heat until boiling. Boil marinade until reduced and slightly thick. Turn down heat to very low and start grilling the tofu.
- Grill tofu 5-6 minutes per side, turning gently, until lightly charred and heated through, being careful not to let tofu overcook. Remove from grill. Drizzle reduced marinade over grilled tofu. Sprinkle with green onions and (if desired) red pepper flakes. Serve at once.

Very tasty, thanks TasteTester. I wish I could have left this longer because it would have been even more flavourful. The marinade is very nice and only takes a few minutes to put together - I like that it includes fresh garlic & ginger. Unfortunately my grill cook (ha!) cooked it too quickly at really high heat, hence the slightly charred look in my photo, but it was still nice. I used the same marinade on some eggplant, so I didn't have extra to reduce and use as a sauce...in hind sight I should have doubled the marinade and done that because grilled/bbq tofu always needs some sauce. I've got lots leftover and think it will make great sandwiches!

Our family moved to Florida from New York in the 90's, so I've brought not only many of the recipes my family has passed down, but have learned to cook some great Southern dishes as well.? When I found RZ, it opened up a whole new world of cooking -- cuisine from different countries, tried-and-true family hand-me-down recipes, and some interesting and delicious dishes I would never have found on my own.
