Lazy summer cooking....It's been 95 degrees at my home this week, and I can't bear to use even the toaster oven. Luckily tofu steaks are great pan fried or served cold, plain. I bought a case of tofu at Costco, and I'm marinating a package (four patties) at a time. Great now to eat cold on a bed of greens, as here, plated on a bed of spinach and garnished with pistachios, but it will be sublime in a month or so when everyone in the neighborhood begins firing up their grills. And the easiest shortcut of all is using your favorite salad dressing as a marinade. I used Trader Joe's Pear and Gorgonzola dressing for this lunch. Once dressed, the tofu will last 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
What are your favorite marinades or salad dressings? Please leave a comment on the blog.
