Grilled Curried Tofu with Sweet & Spicy Tamarind Chutney

Firm tofu is well suited for the grill because it does not fall apart. Seasoned with curry powder, the grilled tofu is not only filling, but also refreshing with its complementary sweet, spicy and tangy tamarind chutney served on the side for dipping. You may have extra chutney left over; serve it with grilled chicken or pork.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup tamarind concentrate, (see Note)
  • 10 small dates, (about 2 1/2 ounces), pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon agave syrup, (see Note)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Pinch-1/4 cayenne pepper, (optional)
  • 2 14-ounce c water-packed firm or extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to high.

Step 2

Blend tamarind concentrate, dates, agave syrup, ginger, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and cayenne (if using) in a blender until smooth.

Cut each block of tofu crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lightly brush each slice with oil and season on both sides with a light sprinkle of curry powder, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
