I’m often asked, “What do I do with tofu?” It seems plenty of people want to add it to their diets, since it’s low in fat and high in protein, but they haven’t got a clue as to how. Here’s a simple yet flavorful recipe. Served with an aromatic rice, it makes for a healthful, substantial meal.
Silken or vacuum-packed tofu is usually found in the produce section of supermarkets. It comes in a variety of consistencies. Extra-firm is best for this recipe--it holds together in the sauce without getting mushy, as tofu sometimes can.
To enliven your rice, crush two or three green cardamom pods with the back of a knife and add to the rice while cooking. Soon you’ll have a wonderful cardamom scent in the kitchen.
Serve this with basmati rice and lime wedges for garnish.
