8 cups


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger

  • ¾ cup whole-milk plain yogurt

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, plus lime wedges for garnish

  • 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, thickly sliced

  • 1 14- to 16-ounce package water-packed extra-firm tofu, cut into 4 slices and patted dry

  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add chili powder, garam masala, turmeric, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Transfer 1/4 cup to a small bowl and stir in lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

  3. Add broccolini and bell pepper to the medium bowl and toss to coat. Transfer to a plate. Add tofu to the medium bowl and gently toss to coat.

  4. Oil the grill rack. Grill the tofu, broccolini and bell pepper, flipping once halfway through, until slightly charred, 6 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and serve with cilantro and lime wedges, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
