Grilling season is here! And I am so excited to share this Chipotle Tofu Steaks with Avocado Corn Salsa recipe with you! I teamed up with my favorite tofu brand, Nasoya, to make these super tasty tofu steaks. I love their Super Firm High Protein Tofu, because you don’t need to press it AND it easily holds it’s shape on the grill. Marinated in a zesty chipotle sauce, grilled until crispy and served with a kale slaw & avocado corn salsa. Light, delicious and tasty!

Step One: Marinate the Tofu

The key to tasty tofu steaks is letting them marinate before putting them on the grill.

For the marinade you’ll need:

  • olive oil
  • chipotle pepper in adobo
  • garlic
  • apple cider vinegar
  • agave
  • lime juice
  • cumin
  • oregano
  • salt & pepper

Add everything to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

Grab a pack of Nasoya’s Super Firm High Protein Tofu, pat it dry and cut it into four steaks. Place the tofu steaks in a shallow dish and coat with the chipotle dressing. Cover and place in the fridge for at least an hour. The longer the better!

Step Two: Make the Slaw

While the tofu is marinating we are going to prep everything else. First up is the kale & cabbage slaw. I love using kale in a slaw because it adds some extra veggies and it doesn’t wilt as quickly, so it can be prepped ahead of time.

To a large bowl add chopped kale, shredded cabbage, vegan mayo, garlic, apple cider vinegar, salt & pepper. Toss everything until coated and give it a taste. Add more vinegar, salt or pepper as needed.

Step Three: Make the Avocado Corn Salsa

I love an avocado salsa during the summer. It is the perfect addition to any meal…and it is super easy to make!

Here is what you need:

  • corn
  • avocados
  • red onion
  • jalapeño
  • cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • lime juice
  • olive oil

Add everything to a bowl and mix to combine.

Step Four: Grill & Serve

Once the tofu is done marinating it is time to hit the grill. Heat the grill over medium-high heat and spray with some oil. Before putting the steaks on the grill, let the excess marinade drip off. Place the steaks on the grill and baste them with the leftover marinade.

Once the bottom has some grill marks, flip the steaks and brush with the marinade. Repeat until all of the marinade is used and the tofu has grill marks on both sides.

To serve, add some slaw to each plate, top with a tofu steak and spoon some of the salsa over the steaks. Sprinkle with some chopped cilantro and dig in.

These steaks are a summer must try!
