  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon (about 5 leaves), chopped fresh sage
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 5 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the Asiago and Walnut Pesto:

Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth.

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Cut the tofu in half diagonally to make 2 large triangles. Cut each large triangle in half to make 4 smaller triangles. Place the triangles, long side down, on a cutting board and carefully cut each into 3 slices. Brush the tofu triangles, on each side, with the extra-virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill the tofu for 2 minutes on each side.

Carefully transfer the tofu to a serving platter. Spoon the pesto over the tofu and serve.
