Chili Glazed Tofu over Asparagus and Rice

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

From Cooking Light. This is on my "to try" list. Will give it a chance next week. The chili sauce should give this an interesting taste. Looking forward to it! I didn't calculate the optional salt into the nutrition. Be advised that 1 tsp of salt has more than 2,000 mg of sodium. Ouch! From Cooking Light. This is on my "to try" list.
