Ingredient Tips

Are you ready to grill up a delicious marinated tofu steak? Before you get started, let’s talk about some ingredient tips to take your dish to the next level.


First up, let’s talk about extra firm tofu. This type of tofu is perfect for grilling because it holds its shape and doesn’t fall apart. When buying tofu, make sure to look for an extra firm in the label, then drain and squeeze out any excess water before marinating.


Our marinade starts with a tangy combination of lime juice and apple cider vinegar. Lime juice adds a bright and fresh flavor, while apple cider vinegar adds a slightly sweet and acidic component. Combine these two ingredients in a bowl and set it aside.

Next, we need to add some sweetness to the marinade. Maple syrup acts as a natural sweetener that balances the tartness of the lime juice and vinegar. Add the maple syrup to the bowl and whisk the ingredients together. For our savory component, we’ll be using low-sodium soy sauce. Soy sauce adds a rich umami flavor that complements the sweetness and tanginess of the marinade. Don’t forget to use low-sodium soy sauce to control the saltiness of the dish.

To bring all the flavors together, we’ll add minced garlic and sesame oil to the marinade. Garlic adds a pungent and earthy flavor, while sesame oil gives a nutty and fragrant aroma. Mix everything together until well combined.

There you have it, folks! Some ingredient tips to elevate your grilled marinated tofu steak. Who said tofu can’t be flavorful and delicious? Give it a try and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Happy grilling!
