- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Salt and black pepper to taste.
- Start by pressing the tofu to remove any excess moisture. Wrap the tofu in a clean kitchen towel and place a heavy object on top, such as a book or a cast-iron skillet. Let it sit for at least 20 minutes.
- Whisk together the minced garlic, olive oil, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
- Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch-thick slices and brush each slice with the garlic and herb mixture.
- Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
- Place the tofu slices on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until grill marks appear and the tofu is heated through.
- Serve the garlic and herb-grilled tofu hot, and enjoy!
