Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 cake of extra-firm tofu (about 14 ounces, drained)
    1/2 cup sesame seeds
    2 T dark sesame oil
    2 T soy sauce
    a few drops Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce (optional)
    2 tsp. olive oil
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    10 ounces fresh baby spinach, rinsed
    salt and pepper

Directions

Slice the block of tofu lengthwise and into 4 rectangular slabs. Then slice the slabs in half to make square pieces. Spread the sesame seeds on a plate. Press all of the surfaces of each tofu square into the sesame seeds to coat evenly. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Arrange the tofu squares in a single layer in the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes. With a spatula, carefully turn them over and cook for about 5 minutes on the other side. Add the soy sauce and Tabasco, turn the tofu squares over, and cook for another minute, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the tofu squares to a plate. (Leave stray sesame seeds in the pan.) Add the olive oil and garlic to the skillet and saute in a low heat for about 60 seconds, until golden. Add the still damp rinsed spinach and cook for a minute or two, stirring constantly, until wilted but still bright green. Season with salt and pepper. Serve tofu atop the spinach.
