Quick Kale and Tofu Stir-fry
This is a 10 minute meal that is not only vegetarian, vegan, and health-conscious, but it is also protein and nutrient packed and above all else…DELICIOUS! This is perfect for a light, filling lunch or for a dinner that you can throw together on the fly.
2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
1 package (12 ounces) extra firm tofu, drained then medium dice
1 bunch kale (about 6 cups packed), stems removed then chopped into bite size pieces
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon low sodium teriyaki sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
2 tablespoons sambal
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
In a large wok, or frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and bring to medium high heat. Add tofu to form an even layer and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the kale and continue cooking for 6 minutes, turning from time to time. Drain excess juice from tofu and kale and add remaining sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, ground mustard, and sambal. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes then top with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
Option: for a fuller meal, serve on top of a mound of brown rice and make sure to spoon in some of the cooking juice on top. Yum!
