Maple-Soy Tofu

Maple-Soy Tofu
Servings: 4 Active Time 30 mins Total Time 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu, cut into 4 rectangles
  • Olive oil

Make It

1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add the rice. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the spinach on top of the rice, cover, and simmer for 5 more minutes or until the rice is tender and water is absorbed. Toss with form to combine and let sit covered.

2. In a baking dish, whisk together the soy sauce, maple syrup, and sesame oil. Marinate tofu in the mixture for 10 minutes, turning once.

3. Preheat a grill to medium, and grease with olive oil. Grill the tofu until browned (reserving marinade), about 4 minutes per side. Serve with rice and spinach. Drizzle with remaining marinade.

Tip

  • If there's time before cooking, remove excess water from the tofu. Sandwich the block between paper towels and place a heavy dish on top for 15 minutes.
