My Mom gave us a George Foreman Grill for Christmas last year. We haven’t used it much since then, but I broke it out to grill some tofu the other night with excellent results. Now I feel stupid that I’ve gone so long letting this little treasure sit above my kitchen cabinets.
I used one package of tofu to make two different dishes, since I like to cook in bulk so we have leftovers. For our main meal, I made the curried couscous dish we are both so fond of and paired it with Tofu Tikka Masala. I used the simple grilling directions from Shift Vegan, but marinated the tofu in Maya Kaimal Tikka Masala sauce for 30 minutes before grilling. I had to add a bit of sauce after grilling to keep it wet and flavorful, but the results were really excellent.
Since I had the grill out, I decided to grill the rest of the tofu package to use for salads or sandwiches later. This time I simply marinated in olive oil and seasoning that you use to marinate chicken before grilling. Voila! Yummy yummy and keeps well in the fridge.
Thank you for the grill, Mommy… and Happy Mother’s Day!
