Grilled Tofu and Pasta Salad

Tofu Rubble

I grilled some tofu tonight.  I’ve never had terrific luck with this on an outdoor grill, and this was my first time with my new cast iron stovetop grill pan, so I tried a recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance.  My big mistake, I believe, was that I didn’t notice you were supposed to use extra firm tofu, and that is probably why my try didn’t work so well with the firm tofu I always buy.  It fell apart and looked like this.  But the kids liked it.

Pasta Salad

With this I made up a pasta salad.  I sort of followed part of a recipe from Totally Vegetarian.  I included whole wheat farfalle, roasted red peppers, black olives, fresh basil, and lettuce, and tossed everything with a dressing I had on hand, Balsamic Herb Vinaigrette, and Toni’s idea, soaked half a chopped Vidalia onion (she called for red) in 2.5 T balsamic for an hour before sprinkling that on as well – that worked out well.  She calls that “macerating.”
