I can’t emphasize enough how tasty, simple and quick this recipe is. So much flavor, from so few ingredients!
Crispy Marinated Tofu with Braised Kale
1 package extra firm tofu, drained and patted dry
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce
1 bunch green kale, torn into bite-sized pieces
1-2 tbsp. Olive oil
Prepare marinade. Mix soy sauce and brown sugar together and set aside. Slice tofu 1/2 inch thick slabs and then into squares. Place into container with marinade to cover. Marinate for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Heat oil in non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Salute tofu until brown and crisp, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove to plate and keep warm.
In hot skillet, add kale and saute until wilted, stirring constantly, adding remaining marinade halfway through and coating greens until mostly evaporated.
Plate and top with sautéed tofu. Serve immediately.
