Garlicky Swiss chard with lemon scented tofu


I can't remember where I found this recipe but it has become a favorite in our home. It is great served on a bed of steamed brown rice, udon noodles or rice noodles.

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons dried basil OR 3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 lb extra firm tofu, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 garlic cloves peeled and minced
1 lb swiss chard washed, stems removed and chopped.
1/4 teaspoon spike seasoning optional

salt to taste

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F.

Mix first five ingredients in small bowl.

Place tofu in a baking dish and pour marinade over the top. Bake for 1/2 an hour, or until marinade is absorbed by tofu and appears dry, tossing every 10 minutes to brown evenly.

In a large saute pan, heat second batch of Olive oil and toast garlic until light brown (4-5 minutes). Add Tofu, reserving any fluid for gravy, to saute pan for one minute. Add greens and turn with tongs until wilted. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender.
