  • Summary

    Forget the meat—grill tofu instead. You won't regret it. [Photograph: Shao Z.] Chipotle and miso come from two different cooking traditions, but they make great bedfellows in this recipe for grilled tofu—first as a marinade, then as a sauce. Combine that with our techniques for turning out perfectly grilled tofu, and you won't even miss the meat.

    Ingredients

    • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo (from a 7-ounce can), finely chopped, plus 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
    • 1 tablespoon miso, preferably red miso
    • 2 teaspoons vegetable or canola oil
    • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
    • 1 pound firm tofu, drained, rinsed, and sliced 1/2 inch thick
    • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 1 scallion, white and light green parts only, chopped
