Meatless Monday with Grilled Tofu Steaks with Piquillo Salsa Verde

Welcome to the Miratel blog and to our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment

As a vegan, I feel like I’m always on the lookout for anything vegan. I notice whenever there is vegan content in anything I read whether it’s a menu, a label or an article. So I was pleasantly surprised at the vegan content on the Food & Wine website. Along with helpful cooking hints (like this Vegan Essentials list), there are also delicious chef-inspired recipes like today’s Grilled Tofu Steaks with Piquillo Salsa Verde (no grill required). According to Melissa Rubel Jacobsen, the talented chef and creator of this incredible recipe, “Firm tofu is ideal for the grill, because it holds its shape and gets nicely smoky. It’s excellent with this tangy salsa prepared with piquillo peppers, capers and parsley.” Thank you to Melissa Rubel Jacobsen and Food & Wine for recognizing vegan recipes have their place at every chef’s table.
