Grilled Tofu with French Dressing

I wanted to do someting different on tofu, than just crumbled pieces on salad. Also at the same time the dish has to be easy. Another reason for preparing this dish is I need a tasty vegetarian protein rich dish.

For the dish,I used MorNu extra firm tofu and fat free french dressing from kraft foods, and some fresh ground pepper.The Tofu packet has 4 slices. I use 1 tbsp dressing per slice. Marinate the tofu slices in french dressing and ground pepper for about 30min to 1 hour and grill for 3-5 minutes on each side. You can use PAM spray to avoid tofu from sticking to the grill.

1 serving of this dish - 1 slice tofu grilled with 1 tbsp fat free french dressing. The calories for the PAM spray/oil arent counted here.

I like tofu a lot but it has a dull flavor. The french dressing added the needed extra zing to the tofu. The dish is super easy and healthy.
