Serves or Makes: 4


  • 1 (15-oz.) block drained and thinly sliced tofu
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/ 4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons gluten free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon agave

  • Salt, to taste
  • Desired toppings: microgreens, tomatoes, sliced vegan cheese, pickled red onions


  • Step 1

    Slice the tofu into 1/2-inch slices and then pat dry. It's best to get most of the water out of it.
