About Grilled Tofu Triangles with Fried Rice
It’s essential to start with extra-firm tofu packed in water. That’s what makes the Grilled Tofu Triangles with Fried Rice a success. After you cut the tofu into triangles, you press it to get as much extra water out of it. That process makes the tofu sturdier and lets it absorb the marinade, making it much more flavorful. The orange juice in the marinade is my favorite part of this recipe. Tofu never tastes this good!
Grilling the tofu is beautiful, but it also adds an outer “crust” to the tofu without making it tough. The trick to the grill marks is patience. Don’t be tempted to flip the triangles to early. You’ll lose the grill marks and risk breaking the tofu; even with the pressing, it’s still fragile.
The fried rice in Grilled Tofu Triangles with Fried Rice is a classic. Sometimes, I’ll add scrambled eggs to the mixture. If I do, I double the tamari I add to the rice and make the fried rice in a wok. I hope you love this healthful and delicious recipe!
