Mustard-Crusted Tofu with Kale and Sweet Potato

Serves: 2-4

Ingredients:


1 14-ounce package firm tofu

1/2 cup whole grain Dijon mustard

4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

1/2 medium onion, sliced

1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

1 bunch kale, stem cut from each leaf, leaves thinly sliced crosswise (about 8 cups)

1 small red-skinned sweet potato (yam; about 8 ounces), peeled, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced crosswise

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


Preparation:

Cut tofu into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange on paper towels; drain 10 minutes. Spread both sides of each slice with mustard.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and ginger; sauté 1 minute. Add kale, sweet potato, and lime juice. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until potato is tender and kale is wilted, about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in another large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tofu; cover and cook until heated through and crisp, about 2 minutes per side (some mustard seeds may fall off tofu).

Arrange kale and sweet potato mixture on plate. Overlap tofu slices atop vegetables and serve.
