Grilled, Glazed Eggplant & Tofu

by Sherri Koehler on November 16, 2009

We’d received a nice eggplant from Oragnics to You, but since I’m really alone in my appreciation for eggplant, so this became my lunch one Monday afternoon.

Although I used eggplant in this dish you can use any vegetable to accompany the tofu.

The Stuff

  • 1 small eggplant, sliced into 1/2″ thick slices
  • 8 1/3″ slices of extra firm tofu, patted dry
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Garlic pepper
  • Maple, miso sesame glaze
  • Canola oil (spray works best)

The Making

Heat cast-iron grill pan at medium heat and set oven to low broil. When cast-iron is hot, reduce heat to medium-low

Lightly sprinkle one side of the tofu and eggplant slices with nutritional yeast and garlic pepper. Spray sprinkled sides with canola oil and transfer, oiled side down, to heated grill pan. When ready to flip, sprinkle top sides with more nutritional yeast, garlic pepper, and spray with canola oil first.

Transfer the grilled tofu and eggplant a broiling pan. Liberally coat the top sides with the maple, miso, sesame glaze and put in oven to broil for 5-7 minutes. Tops should be browned as the glaze caramelizes under the broiler.

Pair with brown rice or other hearty grain. Serves 4.
