2 tablespoons red or white miso
1 tablespoon Thai green curry paste
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons low-sodium sory sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons ginger root, minced
Juice of 1 lime
1 pound firm tofu, sliced 1/2-inch thick across the short side of the block
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
Spinach and Onions:
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup red onion, sliced thinly
4 cups fresh leaf spinach

Instructions

  1. To prepare the tofu: Combine miso, curry paste, honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger root and lime juice in a nonreactive bowl and whisk. Place tofu in a single layer in a nonreactive baking dish and pour miso mixture over tofu. Let sit 10 minutes.
  2. Remove tofu from marinade. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the tofu slices in a single layer. Cook 3 minutes on one side, turn over and brown the other side. Add the reserved marinade to the pan and heat through. Remove the tofu and sauce from the pan to a platter.
  3. To make spinach and onions: Heat oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add onions and saute 2 minutes until slightly softened. Add spinach and continue to cook 2 minutes until the spinach wilts. Serve the tofu slices over warm or room temperature spinach and onions.
