Cajun-Spiced Grilled Tofu

This recipe makes 6 slices of grilled tofu. You can easily double this recipe for a bigger batch. Use the leftover marinade for drizzling over the tofu or as a sauce for your fried rice or stir fries. 
Prep Time35 mins
Cook Time6 mins


  • 12- ounce package of House Foods extra-firm tofu
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more oil for grilling
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, use tamari if gluten free
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon cajun spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Drain the package of tofu and wrap the tofu block around a layer of paper towels. Press the tofu by placing it between 2 large plates. Weigh down the top plate with something heavy, like a bag of flour. Let the tofu sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Slice the tofu into 6 slices. I usually cut along the long side of the tofu block.
  • In a medium bowl, mix 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil, soy sauce, honey, cajun spice powder, garlic powder (if using) and salt. Rub the tofu with the marinade. Let the tofu sit for at least 15 minutes or cover the bowl and marinade the tofu overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil over the grill pan. Add the tofu slices on top of the pan. Arrange them so that the tofu slice are laid diagonally, along the 2 and 8 'o clock position or 4 and 10 'o clock position. Cook the tofu until you see grill marks on the tofu, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the tofu over and repeat on the other side.
  • Serve the grilled tofu with grilled vegetables! Heat up any remaining marinade in a saucepan and drizzle the sauce over the grilled tofu for more flavor.
