Strawberry Jalapeno Tofu (And a Baby Bunny Story with a Happy Ending)

Vegan Strawberry Jalapeno Tofu

Grilled Strawberry Jalapeno Tofu

But first… We had the cutest little visitor in our backyard the other day!

Devastatingly handsome, isn’t he? And the bunny ain’t too bad either.

As hot as he looks gazing into the distance while petting a tiny bunny, he wasn’t actually posing for the shot. He was looking up at our hill, trying to see where the bunny came from, so we could try and get him as close to home as possible when we set him free. After Jason convinced me that we absolutely could not keep him as a pet, that is.  That was when we realized that Mama Bunny was sitting, waiting, just on the other side of the fence. We dropped the little guy over the fence right next to her, and they hippity-hopped back up the hill together where I assume they’ll be biding their time until Easter rolls around again.

As to how the baby bunny got into our yard in the first place? Someone went where they weren’t supposed to. I don’t want to name names, so I’ll just show you a picture of her:

I gave her a stern talking to about how baby bunnies are our friends and good kitties stay in the house. I tried to turn it into a teachable moment, and I feel like she really listened 🙂

Anyhoozle, how about those beautiful grill marks!? This makes a really healthy, low-cal, low-fat meal and since it’s so light it’s perfect for all this hot weather! Plus you don’t have to heat up your kitchen, which is always a bonus in the summertime. Just serve with some quinoa or maybe a nice salad and call it a meal. And, of course, make a full batch of the salsa and serve the leftovers with some chips!

Strawberry Jalapeno Tofu (2 servings)



  1. Slice your pressed and drained tofu. I use the Tofu Xpress so my block are pretty thin to begin with, and I started by cutting the block in half, across the middle. Then I sliced each half into 2 thin rectangles.  If you’re using the old-fashioned plate/books/towels method, you might get 3 slices.
  2. Spray your grill with the non-stick spray, and place the tofu making sure to move it around enough to get the grill marks. I left mine on for about 6 minutes total, on medium heat- but that’ll depend on your grill. You really just want to make sure you have the marks, and that it’s heated all the way through.
  3. Top with Salsa, and that’s it!

    That salsa would be great on tofu! Or anything really. Except grilled bunny.

    • Barb June 21, 2012, 9:45 am

      His ‘guns’ are actually from working out, not from working- he can benchpress approximately 80,000 lbs 🙂

      You’re welcome, if you make it let me know how it turns out!

  • Vegan Thyme (Kelly) June 21, 2012, 1:13 pm

    LOL–“. . . benchpress 80,000 lbs.”! I just wanted to comment that the bunny story touched my heart–and good for the mama bunny–waiting for her wee little one to return to safety for goodness sakes!

      It was sad, but had a happy ending. If more people could see the bond that animal mamas have with their babies, maybe there’d be more vegans in the world. And I’m serious, he’s VERY strong 🙂

    That bunny is soo adorable! What a cute story! I have had similar talks with my cats and I am sure all felines love a teachable moment. Too funny! And this recipe looks amazing! I can’t wait to make your strawberry salsa! I’m so glad I found your blog through Finding Vegan today! I am loving it!

    • Barb July 2, 2012, 6:08 am

      LOL, they’re probably laughing at us in their little kitty heads 🙂
