  • 14 ounces extra-firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari (use gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice , freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ancho chile powder (or other mild chili powder)


  • Wrap tofu in a lint-free kitchen towel and place a light weight (about 1 pound) on top while you prepare the marinade. Something flat like a book with a can of beans on it works well to remove some of the water from the tofu.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a large ziplock bag or bowl.
  • Cut the tofu into 8 slices about 1/2-inch thick. Place them in the marinade, turning so that both sides of slices are coated with the mixture. Refrigerate for at least an hour, turning halfway through.
  • Heat a barbecue grill, electric grill, or non-stick skillet; spray lightly with non-stick spray if necessary. Cook on each side until light brown. Serve with Blueberry-Peach Salsa on the side.
