Sprouting nuts involves a soaking and dehydration process that helps unlock the nutritional benefits of the nut by reducing the phytic acid content which in inherent (to a varying degrees) in all nuts/seeds. Phytic acid clings to other important minerals such as zinc and iron and makes them difficult to fully digest. This can create a strenuous load on the GI tract for many people. Soaking nuts greatly reduces these enzyme inhibitors, and what you’re left with is a more easily digestible nut that is crunchier and packs a more powerful nutritional punch.FullSizeRender-4.jpg

Honey-Ginger-Garlic Glazed Tofu

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I made Honey-Ginger-Garlic Glazed Salmon about a month ago and said I would provide the Tofu version. It’s just as delicious with all of the same flavors. It’s similar to the general tso sauce but on tofu. This is a super quick and easy recipe to make and healthy. Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • Extra Firm Tofu
  • Soy Sauce
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Honey
  • Brown Sugar
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Cayenne powder

Directions:

  1. First, finely chop the garlic and grate the ginger.
  2. In a small pot over medium heat, add a splash of oil and sauté the garlic and ginger until browned.IMG_0106.JPG
  3. Turn the heat on low and add about 4 table spoons of soy sauce, 2 spoons of honey, 2 spoons of brown sugar and stir well.
  4. Add crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.
  5. Let simmer on low for about 3 minutes and stir well. Set aside.IMG_0107.JPG
  6. Place a skillet on medium heat and let it warm up for about 2 minutes.
  7. Cube the tofu.IMG_0108.JPG
  8. Add about 3 spoons of oil and then add the cubed tofu.
  9. Let the tofu cook for about 8-10 minutes.IMG_0109.JPG
  10. Carefully with tongs, flip the tofu on to it’s other side and let it cook for another 10 minutes.
  11. With the tongs, hold the salmon onto its side and let cook.IMG_0111.JPGIMG_0110.JPG
  12. Repeat with the other side.
  13. Place the skillet flat on the skillet on low heat and pour the ginger-garlic glaze over the tofu.IMG_0112.JPG
  14. Heat on low for 2 minutes.
  15. Plate and serve!IMG_0115.JPGIMG_0116.JPGIMG_0117.JPG

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • Serve alongside rice and vegetables.
  • Baking the tofu is also a healthier alternative.
  • Add as much of any of the ingredients you want according to your taste.

This is a perfect recipe if you’re craving general tso chicken but want to opt out of that breaded and deep fried chicken. Tofu is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3-fatty acids! It seriously takes under 30 minutes to make and is great for leftovers as well!
