Calcium-Rich: Grilled Tofu

Home | Recipes | C


  • 1 lb Firm tofu
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 1 tb Packed brown sugar
  • 1 tb Ketchup
  • 1 tb Horseradish
  • 1 tb Cider vinegar
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced


Tofu [or soybean curd] is an excellent source of protein. The equivalent of cottage cheese, it is made by curdling fresh, hot soy milk with a coagulant such as calcium sulphate, a naturally occurring mineral. It is the tofu's reaction with calcium sulphate that makes it an excellent calcium source.
Slice tofu into 1/2-inch thick slices; place in glass baking dish.
Whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, horseradish, vinegar and garlic; pour over tofu, turning to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
Place tofu on greased frill, reserving marinade. Grill over medium-high heat, basting with marinade, for 3 minutes per side or until browned.
