A Simple Marinade

A simple marinade for tofu made from plenty of fresh herbs. marinate your tofu as long as you'd like - even overnight - and then grill it to perfection. Use bamboo skewers if you have them on hand.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped tarragon
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 block firm or extra firm tofu, well pressed
  • Optional veggies: bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant, tomatoes, etc.


Press tofu well and slice into desired shapes - either 1-inch cubes for skewers or 1/2 inch thick slabs to go directly on the grill. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and place in a shallow pan or zip-lock bag. Add tofu and any additional veggies you'd like. Allow to marinate, making sure tofu is well coated, for at least one hour, and up to overnight.
Place tofu and veggies on bamboo skewers and grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
