Introduction

This is one of my all time favorite tofu recipes. I've done a fair bit of tweaking to it and think that I may finally have what I am after. Great source of protein. Don't be scared by the big pile of spinach - it cooks down and ends up being a pretty small portion of the meal. This is one of my all time favorite tofu recipes.

Ingredients

    1 block extra firm tofu
    1 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup canned mandarin oranges
    1/4 cup ginger root, cut into 1" slices
    1 tsp ground ginger
    EDIT: 3 finely chopped cloves of garlic
    2 cups raw spinach - without stems
    1/4 unpacked cup brown sugar

Directions

Cut the block of tofu into 1 inch squares. If necessary, lay the squares out on a clean towel and press to dry.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium (~10") flying pan.

Add the tofu and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the surface is a light golden brown.

Add garlic, ginger root slices, and ground ginger, stirring frequently to keep the garlic from burning. Cook for 5 minutes.

Add spinach and continue to cook for 3 minutes.

Add orange juice and brown sugar, lower heat, and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve with 5 or 6 little mandarin oranges.

Can be served alone or over a bed of rice.
