Springtime = spring cleaning. I don't know about you, but we have a lot of outdoor cleanup to do in the spring. If I didn't call 'quitin' time' we would work from sun up to sun down. The only way I can talk Paul into stopping is telling him that we should have people over and grill out. Who can resist that fun -- besides, you know what they say about all work and no fun?!
I hope everyone can find a way to embrace their spring clean. Make sure to set some time aside to bring out the grill, kick back and relax with your friends and family ... and maybe a Mediterranean Tofu Steak!
Grilled Mediterranean Tofu Steaks
14 oz firm tofu, cut into 1/2 inch 'steaks'
1/2 c olive oil
1 T Balsamic vinegar
1 T lemon juice
1 t oregano
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
4 basil leaves, chopped
4 mint leaves, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 T sun dried tomatoes
1/4 c kalamata olives, chopped
3 T feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
garnish of toasted pine nuts
1 1/2 c spinach, julienned
Marinade the tofu for atleast 3 hours, mixing around every now and again to make sure it is all nicely seasoned.
Heat up your grill, works indoors on a grill top or outdoors. Place the tofu on the grill and cook for about 4-6 minutes on each side depending on how firm you like them.
Make a bed of spinach on each plate. Top spinach with grilled tofu and then tomatoes, olives and feta.
