To serve (optional)


  • Wrap the block of tofu in some kitchen paper (or a clean tea towel) and press gently to remove excess water. Cut the tofu into 8 thin rectangles.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl.
  • Put the tofu in the marinade and mix it in, or brush it on with a pastry brush. You can leave the marinade to set on the tofu for a few minutes or use it directly on the tofu to grill it immediately.
  • In the meantime, make chimichurri sauce using my delicious recipe!
  • Heat your grill or grill pan by rubbing a little oil on the grill pan before cooking on it.
  • Grill the marinated tofu on both sides for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat.
  • Serve with chimichurri sauce, another of your favorite sauces, or just on its own!


Make Ahead: You can prepare the marinade up to a day in advance and store it in an airtight container in the fridge to let the flavors fully combine before adding it to the tofu.
Storage: Keeps fresh for 2 days. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy leftovers cold or reheat in a skillet before serving.
