Ingredients

Instructions

Heat griddle: Place the grill/griddle over the front and back burner. Heat the grill over medium – medium high heat. Using a silicon brush, coat the entire surface well with sesame oil.

Mix marinade: In a small bowl, mix together the tamari/soy sauce and sesame seeds, set aside.

Grill tofu & asparagus: Add tofu squares to half of the grill and the asparagus to the other (I put the tofu towards the front and the asparagus to the back). Cook 5 – 7 minutes. Spoon the marinade over top the tofu, just enough to give it color. Add a little over the asparagus as well. Carefully flip the tofu and cook another 5 – 7 minutes, until golden brown on both sides. Rotate the asparagus as needed to cook evenly. Once complete turn off the heat. Add a few slices of lemon to grill to give it a grilled look, it warms the lemon and makes the juices taste delicious!

Cook cauliflower: Heat a large pan or skillet over medium, add cauliflower, minced ginger, garlic powder and a pinch of mineral salt. Mix and stir until just tender, about 5 minutes.

Serve with a little squeezed lemon and a few extra toasted sesame seeds over top. Enjoy!

Notes

Grate your own cauliflower: Using the large holes of a cheese/box grater, grate cauliflower. Pat ‘cauliflower rice’ with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Alternately, chop the cauliflower into large pieces, place them in a food processor and pulse until you get rice sized pieces.

I never press my tofu, I only blot it dry. The heat from the grill will remove most of the moisture making pressing unnecessary.
