Jamie says: My prize for the Cigna recipe contest came in the mail last week! I used the Williams Sonoma rub for the first time on this recipe. It was absolutely fabulous! If you’ve never tried tofu before, now’s the time…

Smokey Provolone Tofu with Leeks & Red Bell Pepper

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (12 oz drained wt) super firm sprouted tofu (Nasoya tofu plus)
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 3 leeks
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 3 slices provolone (Applegate Farms)
  • 1/2 tsp smoke house rub (William Sonoma)

Directions:

  1. Drain tofu. Wrap it in paper towels and place on a plate. Set heavy pots and pans on top to further drain tofu. Let sit for 30 minutes. Remove paper towels and slice tofu into thirds (sandwich-style). Stack pieces back together and slice into thirds to create 9 pieces of tofu.
  2. Heat a large pan on medium heat. Pour canola oil in pan. Add tofu slices. Cook for about 4 minutes or until light golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, wash leeks well to remove dirt and slice the whites into rings (discarding the dark green thick leafy part). Chop bell pepper.
  4. Flip tofu with a heat-resistant spatula and add leeks and bell pepper. Place a lid on top of the pan and cook for about 4 more minutes or until leeks and bell pepper are soft and lightly brown. Remove lid and add slices of cheese on top. Sprinkle with rub and serve.

Yield: 9 pieces of tofu with veggies

Serves: 3

Serving suggestion: Serve with little pieces of bread to make a few mini sandwiches.

  • Nutrition note: Tofu is a non-meat source of protein and comes from soybeans.
