Broiled Tofu

Mustard greens have a peppery flavor that complements the sweet and spicy sauce here, but you could use any steamed greens as the base for this tofu entrée that can be made in 30 minutes or less. 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 small onion, quartered and thinly sliced (½ cup)
  • 1 small red bell pepper, coarsely chopped (½ cup)
  • ¾ cup hot mango chutney
  • 1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped (¾ cup)
  • Two 16-ounce packages extra-firm tofu, drained and patted dry
  • Two 12-ounce bunches mustard greens, thick stems removed

Directions

Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper, cover, and cook 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in mango chutney and tomato. Cover, and simmer 5 minutes more.

Preheat oven to broil. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Halve each tofu block horizontally to make pieces the size of sandwich bread. Cut each tofu piece into 4 triangles. Brush each triangle on both sides with mango mixture and place on prepared baking sheet. Broil 4-5 minutes. Flip and brush with more mango mixture. Broil 4-5 minutes more, or until browned.

Bring 1 cup water to a boil in large pot. Add mustard greens, cover, and steam 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs.

Divide mustard greens among plates. Top each serving with 2 tofu triangles, and drizzle with 1/4 cup mango sauce. 

Tofu Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Tofu Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
