All you need to complete this meal is a side of steamed snow peas, sugar snap peas, or asparagus. Draining the tofu on paper towels helps it absorb more marinade and ensures maximum flavor when it hits the grill.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place tofu slices on several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 20 minutes, pressing down occasionally. Combine Ginger-Sesame Vinaigrette, cilantro, and soy sauce in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Remove 1/4 cup cilantro mixture; set aside. Add tofu to dish in a single layer, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Add lime slices to marinade, turning to coat. Remove tofu and lime slices from marinade, reserving marinade. Place tofu and lime slices on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until browned and thoroughly heated, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Spoon 1/2 cup rice onto each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 2 tofu slices and 2 lime slices; drizzle each serving with 1 tablespoon reserved cilantro mixture.

This was good, quick, and easy! I used Wegmans organic miso-ginger vinaigrette instead of making it from scratch, substituted brown rice for the white, and left out the cilantro because I didn't have any on hand. I would make this again, and would feel comfortable serving it to vegetarian guests.

The tofu just did not have any flavor. Although by itself the marinade was great, it did absolutely nothing as far as the tofu goes.

I don't know what the rest of the the people who reviewed this were eating, but this was really, really awful. Seriously bland and gross. I threw it in the trash after 3 bites. I do agree that the marinade is quite tasty, but as for the tofu, horrid! I make about 15 tofu dishes and I cannot believe this went so awry. This recipe is going the same place as the tofu!!!

We broiled the tofu in the oven and served over brown rice - the vinaigrette is outstanding!

Excellent recipe. Only thing is that it takes a lot longer than two minutes per side to make the tofu crispy. I'd say it was closer to five on each side.
