Ingredients

  • 1 pkg firm tofu
  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • 4 green onions trimmed
  • 2 zucchinis cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 sweet red pepper quartered
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper quartered
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Balsamic 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: Mix together oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Drain tofu on paper towels; cut in half lengthwise. Trim stems off mushrooms; place caps in large bowl along with green onions, zucchini and red and yellow peppers.

Whisk together oil, basil, salt and pepper; brush 1 tbsp over tofu. Add remainder to vegetables; toss to coat.

Grill zucchini, red and yellow peppers, green onions and tofu, covered, on greased grill over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Turn vegetables and tofu; add mushrooms to grill. Grill, covered and turning mushrooms once, until vegetables are tender-crisp and tofu and mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes.

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 balsamic vinaigrette.
