BBQ Maple Balsamic Tofu

by Vashte on January 29, 2012

Another incredibly simple but oh so tasty dish. There is a theme to my cooking. Simple fast, healthy and tasty. Time is of essence!!


  • 1 packet extra firm tofu, cut into 8 slices
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to make it work:

  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl- not the tofu!!
  2.  Place tofu in a baking dish. Pour half of the marinade over tofu. Turn to coat.
  3. Marinate for 30 minutes. Turn once.
  4. Heat the grill to medium high.
  5. Bring the remainder of the marinade to bubbling over medium heat, reduce heat and simmer for approx 10 minutes or until thick and syrupy.
  6. Grill tofu for 3-4 mins per side, whilst the marinade is reducing.
  7. Grill tofu on each side for 3-4 minutes and baste tofu with marinade with each turn.
  8. Drizzle remainder of marinade over tofu and serve with lightly sautéed broccoli, or greens of your choice. Quinoa for carbs, or pasta of your choice if you prefer.
