  • Prepare the tofu: Cut the tofu block into slices or cubes, depending on your preference.
  • Make the pesto: In a blender or food processor, combine the basil leaves, cilantro leaves, pine nuts, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast (if using), salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth, adding a little water if needed to achieve a thick but spreadable consistency.
  • Marinate the tofu: Place the tofu slices or cubes in a shallow dish. Spoon the pesto over the tofu, making sure to coat each piece evenly. Allow the tofu to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or longer for more flavor.
  • Preheat the grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If using an indoor grill pan, lightly grease it with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Grill the tofu: Place the marinated tofu pieces on the grill. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until grill marks appear and the tofu is heated through.
  • Serve: Serve the Grilled Pesto Tofu hot, garnished with additional fresh herbs if desired.
