Broiled Tofu Steaks with Jalapeno Vinaigrette

March 2, 2013

Since the Coconut Curry Tofu that I made last week was a success, I continued my tofu experimentation with another new recipe from the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  I have to admit that I was a skeptical about a tofu "steak"--it seemed a little lame to put a rectangular block of soy in the same category as a nice cut of beef.  However, the texture was satisfying, the vinaigrette was flavorful, and this was an easy weeknight recipe.

Broiled Tofu Steaks with Jalapeno Vinaigrette Ingredients  
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 jalapeno chile, seeded and diced
  • 15 ounce package extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into four slices
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, quartered

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, olive oil, honey, and jalapeno.  Brush glaze on all sides of each tofu steak.  Place tofu steaks in a shallow baking dish, and broil for 4 minutes.  Turn tofu and brush top with glaze.  Broil for an additional 4 minutes.

Drizzle the remaining glaze over the tofu steaks, and serve with cilantro and lime.
