Grilled Tofu Fries


  • 1 Pound Water-Packed Extra-Firm Tofu
  • ¼ Cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Vegetable Oil
  • ½ Cup Favorite Barbecue Sauce, Warmed
  • Kosher Salt or Sea Salt



  1. Remove tofu from package and pat dry with paper towels. Trim the ends if necessary to make even sides.
  2. Cut block of tofu into ½ inch sides and cut each of those slices into three pieces to make “French fry” pieces. Lay tofu fries on a flat platter in one layer.
  3. Pour soy sauce over tofu and turn pieces over to coat all surfaces. Place on a clean platter and brush on all sides with vegetable oil.
  4. Place tofu fries gently on very clean cooking grates of a pre-heated grill.
  5. Grill tofu for 3-4 minutes and turn over by gently nudging the ends of the tofu with the spatula and turning with the tongs.
  6. Continue grilling for another 3-4 minutes.
  7. Remove from grill and serve with warmed barbeque sauce, and a sprinkle of salt if desired.
