Saag Tofu (Low Sodium)

Submitted by: YIAYIA-THALIA

Introduction

I have enjoyed this in restaurants and packaged. Therefore, when I found a recipe from Life Script in my email, I decided to tweek it to use ingredients I had on hand. I replace Morton Salt Sub for the Salt, used olive oil in place of canola oil and used the fat free yogurt. I have enjoyed this in restaurants and packaged.

Ingredients

    1 14-ounce package of water-packed firm tofu, drained
    4 tsp olive oil
    3/4 tsp Salt Sub
    1 med onion, sliced 1/4" thick
    2 med cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    1 tsp freshly grated ginger root
    1 tsp mustard seeds
    1 lb baby spinach
    1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
    1 1/2 tsp curry powder
    1/2 tsp cumin ground

Directions

1. Cut tofu into thirds lengthwise and eighths crosswise. Heat 2 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of salt sub. Cook, stirring gently every 2-3 mins, until browned on all sides, 6-8 mins. Transfer to a plate.

2. Add the remaining 2 tsp oil to the pan and reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, ginger and mustard seeds and cook until the onion is translucent, 4-6 mins. Add spinach in batches small enough to fit in the pan and cook, stirring frequently until all the spinach has been added and has wilted, 4-6 mins more.

3. Meanwhile, combine yogurt, curry powder, cumin and the remaining 1/2 tsp salt sub in a small bowl. Add to the pan along with the tofu and cook until heated through, about 2 mins.

Makes 5 - 1 cup servings. Serve over brown rice, couscous, millet or any other grain or potato you have on hand.

Enjoy!
