Balsamic Tofu Vegetable Medley

If you have not tried tofu, this is a great way to try it for the first time!  This recipe is super quick and easy, but packed with nutrients and protein! A bounty of vegetables adds bulk and makes this meal appear to have more calories than it does. Found in the Spring 2008 issue of Clean Eating Magazine.

Ingredients:

Olive Oil Cooking Spray

1 pkg of extra-firm fortified tofu, cut into thin slices

2 celery stalks, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

1/2 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and cut in half

2 cups brocoli florets

1 cup green beans, chopped into quarters

1 ripe mango, peeled and cut into strips

3 tbsp gluten-free teriyaki sauce

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

pinch ground black pepper

Instructions:

Spritz a large pot with coooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add tofu and saute for 5 minutes. Remove tofu to a plate.  Add vegetables, mango, teriyaki sauce, balsamic vinegar, pepper flakes and black pepper to pot.  Saute for 5 minutes, then add tofu back to pot and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
