Marinated Grilled Tofu

As I mentioned here, we celebrated my mom's birthday with a big plate (or rather pan) of assorted grilled vegetables. Included was marinated grilled tofu, which was really easy to make and deliciously flavorful. We marinated the tofu with the marinade from What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway? then just grilled it on our new grill.

This whole grilling thing was a new experience for me, since I think the last time I grilled I was about 10 years old, so I didn't really know how thick to cut the tofu. I found out thicker is better, at least 1/2" because anything smaller just kind of falls apart.

Marinated Grilled Tofu


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon liquid smoke (optional)
black pepper to taste
12 oz. block of tofu, thickly sliced


Marinate the tofu in the olive oil, ketchup, soy sauce, liquid smoke (if using), pepper mixture for at least 20 minutes prior to grilling.

Grill for 15-20 minutes or until they start to brown. 


  1. I have been look for new ways to cook tofu, never thought to grill it...thanks

    1. It's delicious grilled! Just make sure to cut it thick enough :) I realized looking back through my posts that I have very few tofu recipes, which is weird because I eat tofu all the time in lots of different ways. I'm going to have to remember to write about it more.
