Tofu Halloumi with oil free Chimichurri Sauce

Hi Savvys,

I have been on a craze with meal prep since my fitness challenge back in January of 2021.  But especially since going back to work full time, it is so important for me to have meals prepped for the week so that I can concentrate on work and spend all of my extra time with my son!

This has made me want to utilize sheet pan means!  Not only are sheet pan meals so easy to prepare, but you can make so many different dishes with minimal effort!  I especially love this tofu halloumi with chimichurri sauce because it can be eaten on rice, in a salad or even a wrap!

Check out the full recipe below!

Now set forth and be savvy!

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp white miso paste
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 block of extra firm tofu

Directions for the Tofu Halloumi

  1. Press the block of extra firm tofu by placing it I the bottom of a salad spinner or strainer, placing a plate on top of the tofu and then a heavy pot on top of the plate to press.  Continue to the next step.
  2. To the bottom of a shallow glass container, mix all of the marinade ingredients until smooth
  3. After about 20 minutes, cut the tofu block into 16 even pieces
  4. Place the tofu pieces into the marinade and gently coat each piece of tofu. 
  5. Cover and let marinade for 4 hours – it’s even better over night

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed mint
  • 1 cup packed cilantro
  • 1 cup packed parsley
  • ½ cup packed basil
  • 3 stalks of green onion, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup red win vinegar
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp chili flakes

Directions for oil free Chimichurri Sauce

  1. Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth
  2. Store in a class jar
  3. This sauce can be kept in the fridge for up to a week – I also like to divide in 2 and freeze a portion for later use

Directions for tray bake

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper
  3. After the tofu is done marinading, place them evenly onto the tray
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping half way
  5. Optional: at the same time, you can also roast some veggies to go along side for a full meal!
