Here’s another summer grill recipe I think you’ll like. It combines the complementary flavors of cilantro, coriander and jalapeno in an easy-to-make marinade that is wonderfully absorbed by the tofu. Grilling adds another layer of flavor. Who says tofu can’t be tasty!

1 cup lightly packed cilantro (chopped fine)
2 jalapeño peppers (stemmed, deveined and minced)
½ teaspoon lime zest (chopped fine)
2 tablespoons fresh limejuice
2 tablespoons toasted coriander seeds (crushed)
1/3 cup grape seed oil
2  14-ounce Wildwood SprouTofu Firm Water Packs (drain and pat dry)
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat grill to medium high heat (450 degrees).

Cut tofu into ¾ – inch thick slices. Place between paper towels and press down to remove excess moisture.

In a small bowl, whisk the cilantro, jalapeño, lime zest, limejuice and coriander with the grape seed oil.

Place tofu in a large baggie, add marinade, and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grill the tofu for 5 minutes per side. Serve with a garden salad and fresh-baked bread still warm from the oven.
