GF Vegan Meal: Grilled Orange Tofu with Veggies

Whenever my husband is away, I take the opportunity to make food he wont typically eat. This usually means I am going to have tofu. If you would like to try to make this delicious and veggie packed dish, read on.

During his last trip I decided to make grilled tofu with vegetables. I wanted a nice refreshing  flavor as this was a post - gym work out, so I decided to make a citrus-y marinade for the tofu and have asparagus, red peppers and cucumbers as sides.

Start by preheating your oven to about 400F. Cut an orange in half and juiced both sides into a bowl. Add juice of 1/4 of a lemon. To make a darker sauce and add a bit of sodium, add about 1/2 tbsp of San-J GF Tamari into the marinade, mixed and added sliced tofu into the bowl. Season the top of the tofu with some salt, pepper, tumeric and oregano for flavor. 

While that marinades, chop up half a red onion (or a whole for two servings), and prep a few pieces of asparagus. If you'd like to take the chopping op, you can cut up some cucumbers now as well. 

Once the tofu has marinaded on both sides and your veggies are ready, place all into a grill pan. Spray asparagus and red peppers with extra virgin olive oil, and top with salt, pepper and oregano if desired. You may also choose to add more of the tofu marinade on top of the tofu once it's in the pan. 

Cook for 10 minutes, flip all and cook another 10 minutes. Serve with the raw cucumbers.
