Method

1. Cut tofu into 8 equal slices. Pat dry all over with paper towels. Sprinkle tofu with piri piri seasoning.

2. Preheat a BBQ plate over moderately high heat. Toss all vegetables (except spinach) with oil in a large bowl and season to taste.

3. Cook vegetables, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add tofu alongside vegetables and cook, turning, for 5 minutes, or until tofu is browned.

4. Combine vegetables, spinach and vinegar in a large heatproof serving bowl. Toss gently to combine and until spinach wilts slightly.

5. Top salad with tofu. Serve warm.

Tip:

Pressing tofu between paper towels removes excess moisture. This prevents it going soggy when cooked and gives an extra-crisp coating.
