Mediterranean Grilled Tofu

Mediterranean Grilled Tofu

Course: Mains


  • 1 14 oz package extra firm tofu
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne 
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste


  • Drain excess water from tofu. Pat dry and wrap in a clean towel or paper towel. Set something heavy on top, like a cookbook, and let sit for at least 30 minutes-1 hour. 
  • Heat grill to medium.
  • Whisk together all remaining ingredients until the spices are well incorporated into a paste. 
  • Transfer tofu to skewers and brush with marinade. Let sit for 15 minutes, then grill for 3-5 minutes on each side, until slightly charred. Optional: brush with more marinade while they're grilling, or reserve some for serving.
  • Serve atop hummus with pita and a salad. Use any leftover marinade as a sauce. Enjoy!
