George Foreman Tofu


I have tried many ways cooking tofu, the challenge is getting the texture right. I like it to have a chewy outside and tender inside. But most importantly it has to taste good!!!!!
There are many ways to achieve this, but the challenge is not to use a ton of oil. Fried tofu is awesome but it will take on 2/3 of a cup of oil per pound of tofu. So usually I use one of two methods, first is to cube the tofu and mix in a bowl with a couple of teaspoons of oil with spices, and bake at 375 for about 20 min,
or I will marinate and cook in the George Foreman grill.
Here's what it takes:
Marinade - process in the blender
  • Fresh ginger
  • Fresh garlic
  • Soy sauce
  • Oil - teaspoon
Tofu - cut in 1/2 inch thick slices
Marinate the tofu for about half an hour, then grill for about 15 minute, brush with marinade.
I usually cook two pounds of tofu so there is left over tofu, which is awesome on salads, sandwiches, tacos, or by themselves.


Served with instant brown rice and steamed broccoli, I take a cup or so of the marinade and added a teaspoon of corn starch then heated in microwave until thickened, serve on top. This meal took about 40 minutes.

How much of the Fresh ginger, Fresh garlic, and Soy sauce do I need? Or is it to taste?

Hats off to you. I came to this same conclusion on my own, but obviously you did it first. Congrats!

I tend to spice to taste. With tofu I generally go with intense on the outside, subtle on the inside:)
