As Bethenny explained on the show today, it's easy to use tofu as a healthy protein. She recommended this marinade to soak it in before you grill it.
Marinated Tofu (to be grilled)
1 14 oz extra firm tofu block drained & dried, cut into 4 triangles
Juice squeezed from 1 lemon
3 Tbs olive oil
1 garlic clove smashed into a paste with 1/4 tsp of salt
ground fresh black pepper to taste
1/4 cup soy sauce
1. Take the brick of tofu and wrap it up in a towel or a couple of paper towels. Weight it down with a heavy plate or sheet pan to get rid of all the moisture.
2. Put the tofu in a bowl. Add ingredients and let sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
3. Grill the tofu on a grill pan on the stove. Serve.
