Grilled Tofu and Rice with Ginger Sauce

Ready again for some Asian scrumptiousness? This time we made grilled tofu paired with spicy rice. We’ll flavor our rice with turmeric and enhance everything with a green sauce, where ginger has the defining flavor. So, do you have 25 minutes at your disposal?

Ingredients

water
1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil
salt
1 teaspoon turmeric
8 ounces of rice
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon ginger, shredded
pepper
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
12 ounces of tofu (cut into 4 thicker slices)

Steps

  1. Fill a medium pot halfway with water and bring it to a boil. Add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, a dash of salt and the turmeric. Stir.
  2. Add the rice, stir, cover with the lid and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining olive oil, the lime juice, ginger, spring onion, and jalapeno to the blender. Season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  4. Heat 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a grill pan and add the tofu. Grill on both sides for 4 minutes or until the golden brown marks appear.
  5. Serve the tofu over rice and drizzle with green sauce. Optionally, you can garnish with more chopped jalapeno.
