What is a new and different way to cook tofu?

Grilled Tofu

For a tasty variation on tofu, try grilling it on your barbecue. Press firm or extra-firm tofu for 30-60 minutes to remove excess moisture. Brush with a mixture of soy sauce and sesame oil and grill, basting with the same mixture until browned, about 5 minutes per side. To prevent your tofu from sticking, brush your grill generously with oil beforehand.

For those of us who don't use oils, I season the tofu with cayenne, garlic powder, and onion powder then place it on the grill. I use the extra firm, light tofu. I have not had a problem with it sticking. The toaster oven also works well for grilling the seasoned tofu.
