Firm tofu is ideal for the grill, because it holds its shape and gets nicely smoky. It's excellent with this tangy salsa prepared with piquillo peppers, capers and parsley.   Ingredient Tips from F&W Editors

Ingredients

  • 8 jarred piquillo peppers—drained, rinsed and cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • 3 tablespoon(s) capers, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoon(s) finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • pinch(s) of cayenne
  • 5 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 18 ounce(s) firm tofu, drained and sliced into 8 rectangles
  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices of ciabatta

Directions

  • 1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a medium bowl, mix the piquillo pepper strips with the chopped capers, chopped parsley, minced shallot, sherry vinegar, ground cumin, cayenne and 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season the piquillo salsa verde with salt and pepper.
  • 2. Pat the tofu slices dry with paper towels. Brush the tofu and bread on both sides with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the bread over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred, about 2 minutes. Grill the tofu, turning once, until grill marks form and the tofu is heated through, about 6 minutes. Transfer the grilled bread and tofu pieces to plates. Spoon the piquillo salsa verde over the tofu and serve.
