Grilled Tofu Fries
Updated: May 20, 2021
Ingredients 1 pound water-packed extra-firm tofu
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup favorite barbecue sauce, warmed
Kosher salt or sea salt, optional
Instructions Remove tofu from package and pat dry with paper towels.
Trim the ends if necessary to make even sides.
Cut block of tofu into ½ - inch slices and cut each of those slices into three pieces to make “french-fry” pieces.
Lay tofu fries on a flat platter in one layer.
Pour soy sauce over tofu and turn pieces over to coat all surfaces.
Place on a clean platter and brush on all sides with vegetable oil.
Place tofu fries gently on very clean cooking grates of a pre-heated grill.
(I use a spatula to steady the tofu pieces and use long-handled locking chef tongs to put them on the grill.)
Grill tofu for 3-4 minutes and turn over by gently nudging the ends of the tofu with the spatula and turning with the tongs.
Continue grilling another 3-4 minutes.
Remove from grill and serve with warmed barbecue sauce, and a sprinkle of salt, if desired.
