  • Whisk together oil, lemon juice, and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Brush both sides of tofu, zucchini, and eggplant with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, working in batches if necessary.

  • To assemble, lay an eggplant slice on each plate, then top with tofu and zucchini; repeat. Drizzle each stack with dressing and serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Notes

Weight It Out
Pressing tofu rids it of excess water and gives it a firm, meaty texture that's ideal for grilling. Start pressing tofu in the morning and it will be ready to use when you get home.

Ooooh! I made this for the book club girls lunch today! Hubby had a taste too and he usually doesn't like anything but meat! Very light and refreshing for the hot day. I used my tofu press from Sur La Table which streamlined the pressing steps too.
