If you've wanted to season tofu with a lot of flavour, try Arvinda's Tandoori Masala! Fantastic as a grilling marinade, all it takes is a bit of oil, add some sea salt to taste and mix in the masala. Rub onto extra-firm tofu (organic preferred) with a splash of lemon or lime juice for a touch of brightness and allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour, if not for 2-3 hours.
What I like about summer cooking is it's fresh, easy, flavourful and can be made in a pinch when you're looking for a quick meal. Bake in the oven, grill on the barbeque or even fry it in the skillet for the quickest method.
When done, it tops well on top of salad greens for a light lunch or stuff into a pita pocket with onions and tomatoes.
Honestly, it can be eaten on its own especially when fried up in the skillet! Be sure to cook well until the edges are crispy and golden, which makes the tofu even more delectable I would say.
