Grilled Tofu Salad

Ingredients
  

  • 14 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons Miso & Easy 3 teaspoons miso paste + 3 teaspoons hot water, divided
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oil for salad olive, canola, vegetable, grapeseed
  • 4 handfuls of salad greens + any other salad vegetables of your choice

Instructions
 

  • Cut the tofu block into 1/2" thick slices and with a towel, pat each slice of tofu dry on both sides.
  • In a small bowl, add just 1/2 of the miso (we'll use the other half in the dressing). Brush the tofu on one side with miso.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, drizzle in the cooking oil and add the tofu, miso side down. Cook for 2-3 minutes until browned. Brush the top of the tofu with more miso. Carefully flip the tofu and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Whisk together the remaining miso, soy sauce, ginger, water, sesame oil and sugar. Slowly drizzle in the oil while whisking to finish the dressing.
  • Assemble the salad greens and vegetables, serve with grilled tofu slice and miso salad dressing.
