Make

  1. Heat grill to 400F / 204C degrees, keeping one part of the grill with direct heat and another part with indirect heat. Clean grates and brush with some oil.

  2. Season tofu on both sides with some salt and pepper. 

  3. Place tofu and corn over direct heat. Sear both for ~2 minutes per side, closing the lid after each turn. Move tofu and corn to indirect heat and continue cooking until corn is tender and tofu heated through and golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes more (depending on thickness).

  4. Toss cucumbers, avocados, edamame and salad greens in sesame vinaigrette until dressed to your liking.

  5. Spoon miso butter over tofu (and corn if you’d like) while still warm. Enjoy tofu with corn and salad on the side.
