Freezing tofu the night (or up to one month) before you cook it gives it a firmer, chewier texture that's less likely to fall apart on the grill. Feel free to experiment with different grilled summer veggies when building these stacks.

Ingredients

Summer Vegetable Stacks

  • 1 16-oz. pkg. extra-firm tofu, frozen, thawed, drained, and patted dry
  • 1 medium eggplant (1/2 lb.), halved and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 yellow squash (1/2 lb.), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil

Gremolata

  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. grated lemon zest

Preparation

1. Cut tofu into 4 slabs, and set aside.

To make Gremolata:

2. Pulse parsley, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and lemon zest in blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
