This is one of my favorite recipes for strength and endurance. I love how it makes me feel: strong and relaxed at the same time. Perfect for a tough workout.
Makes 3-4 servings
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 brick extra firm tofu, sliced into 1/3-inch thick slabs
3-4 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced
½ red onion, thin half-moon slices
generous pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 small bunch kale, rinsed very well
Place oil, rice syrup and soy sauce in a skillet over medium heat. When the mixture begins to sizzle, carefully arrange tofu slices in the pan. Cook until browned and then turn and brown on the other side, (about 3 minutes per side).
While the tofu cooks, place a small amount of oil, garlic and onion in a skillet over medium heat. When the onion begins to sizzle, add salt and crushed red pepper flakes and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Coarsely chop the kale and stir into the skillet. Season to taste with salt and sauté until bright green and just wilted, about 2 minutes.
To serve, arrange kale on a serving platter with tofu slices on top.
