Grilled Balsamic Tofu and Asparagus

Which calls for more grilling!!  When it’s way too hot to cook inside I am always looking for easy dinners to grill up in the backyard, and this Grilled Balsamic Tofu and Asparagus recipe is one of my go-to recipes!  The balsamic tofu mixed with the cool cucumber and avocado just go hand-in-hand for the perfect warm weather meal.

This recipe is quick, easy and good hot or cold, makes great leftovers!

Tofu Grilling Tips

My husband and I are obsessed with grilling tofu and have discovered a few tips along the way:

  • Use Extra Firm Tofu for the best outcome
  • The longer you marinade your tofu the more flavor it will adsorb
  • To avoid your tofu from sticking to the grill, use a heavy duty tin foil and spray with cooking spray to cook your tofu on
  • Add some of your marinade as grilling by drizzling on top of your tofu
  • Grill tofu to your liking, we like ours more done and crispy on the outside

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 oz. Organic Tofu, Extra Firm
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • dash of Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 lb. Asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 1 Cucumber, diced
  • 1 Avocado, diced

Instructions

1

Press tofu for 15 minutes to removed liquid.

2

In a small mixing bowl add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup, sriracha, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Mix well.

3

After tofu has been pressed slice in into four triangle pieces and place in a deep dish. Cover tofu with balsamic mixture and refrigerate (the longer the better, but 15 minutes is fine too).

4

Meanwhile, prepare your quinoa: Bring water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add quinoa. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until all of the liquid is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes. Keep covered for an additional 5 minutes to steam. Set aside.

5

Clean and trim Asparagus, place on tin foil, drizzle lightly with olive oil and wrap.

6

Heat grill to medium and add asparagus packets. Let grill for 5 minutes before adding tofu.

7

You can grill right on the grill or place a piece of tin foil on grill, spray with cooking spray and cook tofu (we use this method).

8

Grill tofu for 3-5 minutes on each side.

9

Remove asparagus and tofu from grill.

10

On a plate add quinoa, tofu, asparagus, cucumber and avocado. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!

Seriously, grilled tofu will change your life! Experiment with different marinade options: BBQ sauce, wing sauce, the possibilities are endless!
