ARUGULA WITH TOFU

Updated: May 4, 2021


I believe that tofu gets a bad wrap. Probably because there's a lot of misunderstanding of how to use it. Its a vehicle for flavour and if you forget that, then yes, it can be bland and tasteless. Fear not! Here is a great tasty recipe that is low on carbs and high on life giving nutrients and taste!!


INGREDIENTS

Yields 2

Cooking Time 30 mins

● 7 3/4 ozs Tofu (sliced)

● 2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)

● 1 tbsp Tamari

● 2 tbsps Lemon Juice (divided)

● 1 1/2 tsps Raw Honey

● 1 1/2 tbsps Orange Juice (fresh)

● 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard

● 1/16 tsp Sea Salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add the tofu slices to a large dish along with half the extra virgin olive oil, tamari, half the lemon juice and raw honey. Marinate for 15 minutes.

  2. Heat a skillet or cast iron pan over medium heat and add the drained tofu. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until crispy and browned on each side. Remove and set aside.
