Charred tofu, corn and asparagus salad

This is my recipe for today from Taste;


  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 300g firm tofu, drained, cut into 1cm-thick slices
  • 2 large corncobs, husks and silk removed
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon basil pesto
  • 100g baby rocket
  • 250g mixed cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons shaved parmesan
  • Select all ingredients


Step 1

Combine the lemon rind, oregano, 1 tbs lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil in a small bowl. Brush the oregano mixture evenly over the sliced tofu.

Step 2

Preheat a chargrill pan or barbecue grill over high heat. Lightly spray the tofu, corn and asparagus with oil. Cook the corn for 8 minutes, turning, or until tender. Cook tofu and asparagus for 1-2 minutes each side or until lightly charred and asparagus is tender.

Step 3

Meanwhile, whisk the pesto, remaining 1 tbs lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil in a small bowl until combined.

Step 4

Cut the corn cobs into 1.5cm-thick rounds. Combine the corn, rocket, tomato and asparagus in a bowl. Divide among serving plates or place on a large platter. Top with the tofu and drizzle with the pesto dressing. Serve sprinkled with parmesan.
