Tofu takes on the flavors of its marinade: soy sauce, sesame oil, chili paste, lime juice, ginger, and garlic. It is cooked and served with sauteed, calcium-dense greens.

    Everyone loved this. I used tamari sauce instead of soy sauce - I like the flavor better, and it's less salty than soy sauce. I did add the red pepper flakes at the end. I didn't have Tabasco or chili paste so that was omitted. This should definitely be doubled.

    This is delicious! The marinade was perfect on the tofu but a little salty on the greens. I used collard greens. I also steamed some beets and squeezed a little lemon on them and they went really well with the dish. I'll make it again but maybe cut down on the soy sauce for the greens. Yum!

    I don't use paper towels, I just weight the whole block between two plates with heavy pan on top of the top plate. A great, simple option to cook tofu: slice like above, sprinkle a little oil
