Grilled Curried Tofu with Sweet & Spicy Tamarind Chutney

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/grilled_curried_tofu_with_sweet_spicy_tamarind_chutney.html

From EatingWell:  August/September 2006

Firm tofu is well suited for the grill because it does not fall apart. Seasoned with curry powder, the grilled tofu is not only filling, but also refreshing with its complementary sweet, spicy and tangy tamarind chutney served on the side for dipping. You may have extra chutney left over; serve it with grilled chicken or pork.

8 servings, 2 slices tofu & 2-3 tablespoons chutney each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Blend tamarind concentrate, dates, agave syrup, ginger, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and cayenne (if using) in a blender until smooth.
  3. Cut each block of tofu crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lightly brush each slice with oil and season on both sides with a light sprinkle of curry powder, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the tofu slices until golden and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Serve hot with the tamarind chutney for dipping.
