Grilled Tofu w/ Sage Pesto

Earlier this week I came home and BD was acting very mysterious… He quickly covered up his computer screen when I walked into the apartment, and wouldn’t make eye contact….. yes, that’s right, he was planning a surprise dinner for me

… what did you think he was doing?  

Anyway, since I ruined the surprise we decided to make it a team effort, and it turned out deliciously.  I grilled the tofu, and BD made this amazing sage pesto.  Here is the recipe.

Grilled Tofu with Sage Pesto

  • 1 brick tofu, cut into wedges & drained of excess water
  • appx 10 leaves fresh sage
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • handful of fresh basil
  • handful of grated asiago cheese
  • handful of chopped walnuts
  • olive oil
  • salt & ground black pepper 
  1. Brush tofu wedges with olive oil, then season with salt & pepper
  2. combine sage, basil, garlic, walnuts, cheese, and ground pepper in food processor – pulse several times until coarse mix forms
  3. with food processor running, drizzle in olive oil to desired consistency (we went for a thicker paste consistency)
  4. Over medium-hot fire, grill tofu for 4-5 minutes on each side
  5. Top tofu with pesto & enjoy

Welcome, summertime!
