Grilled Herbed Tofu with Avocado Sauce

I was watching the food network and became inspired. I created a slightly healthier recipe for the sauce because I took out all the processed fats from the olive oil.
Grilled Herbed Tofu with Avocado Sauce (serves 3-4)
Ingredients:
Tofu
  • One 12-ounce container extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (I used spray to use less oil)
  • 1 tablespoon herbs de Provence
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Sauce

  • One 6-ounce ripe Haas avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 packed cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 large lime, zested
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

For the tofu: Place a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. (If not using a nonstick grill pan, oil the grill lightly before cooking the tofu to prevent sticking.) Cut the tofu in half diagonally to make 2 large triangles. Cut each large triangle in half to make 4 smaller triangles. Cut through each triangle horizontally to make 8 triangles. Brush on each side with olive oil. Season with the herbs de Provence, salt and pepper. Grill the tofu until light golden, 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a platter.

 For the sauce: In a food processor, blend the avocado, parsley, broth, lime juice, garlic and lime zest until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon the cream over the tofu and serve.
