Kale & Tofu
Thanks to the wonders of premade sauces, tofu can be delicious. Yes, it’s time to extol the virtues of a generally bland food that can acquire the flavor of anything and everything. I used a marinade from … Trader Joe’s this time but there are any and all sorts of varieties to choose from wherever you shop.
After boiling the tofu to remove the excess water, I marinated it in about 1/2 cup of the sauce overnight. Actually it sat in the marinade much longer in the refrigerator but I think a long stint during the wee small hours of the morning is sufficient.
After heating a skillet with oil, I then pan fried them for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side, drizzling a little more marinade during the last minute or so for the added punch.
Transferring that into a bowl, I quickly cooked up some kale in the same pan – adding lemon juice, a drop or two of water and salt. I love how green and vibrant it looks!
