  • 2 Tablespoons high-heat oil
  • 1 (14-oz) block extra-firm tofu, sliced into triangles
  • 2-3 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 Tablespoons white miso
  • 1-2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons soy sauce (optional)
  • Black pepper to taste
  • ¾ cup toasted, shredded coconut


  1. In a heavy skillet heat the high-heat oil until warm. Add sliced tofu and grill until lightly browned, about five minutes. Flip, and brown on opposite side.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together coconut oil, miso, lemon juice, soy sauce, and black pepper until smooth.
  3. Heat coconut oil mixture in a small saucepan until warm. Add cooked tofu, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring to coat.
  4. Remove tofu and toss into toasted coconut, flipping until coated on both sides. Continue with remaining pieces, until all pieces are coated evenly. Layer onto plates or a serving tray and serve immediately. Enjoy!
