Keep focused! You can do it! 😉
- 1 Tbsp. gcoconut oil
- 300grs of tofu, cut in small cubes
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tsp. grated or minced fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp turmeric, powder
- 400 grs of baby spinach, rinsed
- 200 grs of finely chopped asparagus
- 3 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
- 2 Tbsp. tamari sauce
- Hymalain salt and black pepper, to taste
- Slice open the package and drain out the water. Lay a dish towel on a tray; place some paper towels on top of that. Set some heavy objects on top. Like some canned goods, cookbooks etc. Leave it alone for at least 30 minutes, but preferably a couple hours. If you're really in a hurry, you can apply some "manual pressure" and cut back the time to 15 minutes, but it's not going to be quite as good. Uncover, and start cutting the tofu into cubes.
- Heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet or wok, and add the tofu cubes and turmeric powder. Stir-fry until the tofu is lightly coloured, three to five minutes, and add the garlic, ginger and asparagus. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
- Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about one minute, and add tamari. Add the spinach and stir-fry until the spinach wilts, about one minute. Stir in 2 tbsp of the sesame seeds and remove from the heat.
- Transfer the spinach and tofu mixture to a serving bowl, leaving the liquid behind in the pan or wok.
- Garnish with the remaining tbsp of sesame seeds and enjoy.
- If you want an extra serving of vegetables and flavour why not adding some mushrooms? Mushrooms are great in taste and also deliver important nutrients including niacin, selenium and riboflavin. Mushrooms are also rich in Vitamin D, B and potassium.
