I never knew tofu could take so wonderful! This is from One Vegan Arab, I made a few changes to add a bit more flavor.
- block of extra firm tofu
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp of sea salt
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp dried mint
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
Drain and press tofu – wrap it in a clean cloth and place a heavy book on top for about 15 minutes. When done, slice in half lengthwise and then slice those in
Combining the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Note that you want the marinade to be a thicker consistency rather than watery – so adjust liquid amounts accordingly.
In a shallow dish, lay out the tofu strips and pour over a little marinade on each strip using your fingers to rub it in on both sides. leave the tofu to rest for 30 min or overnight.
Heat waffle iron. Grill tofu for 5 minutes or so in your waffle iron/grill until golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside.
Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, chopped fresh mint, olives and tomatoes.
