You can serve this simple stir-fry with grains or noodles, or (my preference) use it as a filling for a whole wheat pita pocket.

Recipe Ingredients for Spinach, Tofu and Sesame Stir-Fry

1 tablespoon peanut oil
8 ounces tofu, reduced fat, (cut in small dice)
1 garlic clove, large, minced
1 teaspoon grated or minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 Soy sauce to taste
6 ounce baby spinach, rinsed
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Recipe Directions for Spinach, Tofu and Sesame Stir-Fry

  1. Heat the canola oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet or wok, and add the tofu. Stir-fry until the tofu is lightly colored, three to five minutes, and add the garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about one minute, and add soy sauce to taste. Add the spinach and stir-fry until the spinach wilts, about one minute. Stir in the sesame seeds, and add more soy sauce to taste. Remove from the heat.

  2. Using tongs, transfer the spinach and tofu mixture to a serving bowl, leaving the liquid behind in the pan or wok. Drizzle with the sesame oil, and add more soy sauce as desired. Serve with rice or other grains, or noodles. You may also use it as a filling for whole wheat pita bread.

  3. Variation: Once cooked, finely chop the tofu and spinach and use as a filling for spring rolls or wontons.
