Ingredients

  • 1 pkg firm tofu
  • 4 portobello mushrooms about 1lb
  • 4 green onions trimmed
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Balsmaic Vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Balsamic Vinaigrette: In small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week.)

Drain tofu on paper towels; cut in half lengthwise and set aside.

Trim stems from mushrooms; place caps in large bowl. Trim green onions to 8-inch (20 cm) lengths; add to bowl. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; add to bowl. Seed, core and cut red and yellow peppers into quarters; add to bowl.

In small bowl, whisk together oil, basil, salt and pepper; brush 1 tbsp (15 mL) over tofu. Add remainder to vegetables; toss to coat.

Place zucchini, red and yellow peppers, green onions and tofu on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill for 5 minutes. Turn vegetables and tofu. Add mushrooms; close lid and grill, turning mushrooms once, until vegetables are tender-crisp and tofu and mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes longer.

Cut tofu into bite-size pieces; place on large platter. Cut zucchini diagonally into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; add to platter. Thinly slice mushrooms; add to platter. Arrange green onions and red and yellow peppers alongside. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
