Grilled Herb Tofu

I love the taste of gyros. I can do without the lamb, but the herbs and spices are quite tasty. So I have been searching for a good gyro recipe using tofu, which has a similar enough consistency to lamb.

I combined two recipes and came up with something that is not quite the gyro flavor I was looking for, but the taste nonetheless was wonderful. Sometimes "failing" at your quest can succeed in discovering something new.

Grilled Herb Tofu


1 block firm tofu, drained
2 T olive oil
1½ T lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 t oregano
1 t rosemary
¼ t pepper
1 t soy sauce


1. Slice the tofu along the short edge in 8 thin slices.

2. Mix together all other ingredients in a dish. Lay the tofu slices in the marinade and make sure it is all covered. Marinade for at least 4 hours. Overnight is best.

3. Grill the tofu on a hot grill.
