Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Serves: 4

  • 1 pound organic, non-GMO tofu
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • ¾ tablespoon wheat-free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • ½ tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 13 ounces spinach
  • 1 avocado, sliced


1.) Rinse the tofu, pat dry, and cut into small cubes. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and add the sesame oil. Carefully place the tofu in the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, turning the tofu occasionally to brown on all sides.

2.) In a bowl, combine ginger, garlic, tamari, mirin, rice vinegar and sesame seeds, pour over the tofu, and stir. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer about 6-8 minutes until the liquid has reduced so that the tofu is lightly glazed.

3.) Serve over a bed of spinach and top with avocado slices.
