This is a Priya-and-Lisa re-interpretation of a recipe from 101cookbooks.com. We're pretty sure it would be amazing with blue cheese as a salad topping . . . although honestly, it almost didn't even make it onto our dinner plates, since we ate most of it right out of the pan.
1 carton extra-firm tofu, drained and cut into bite-sized pieces
a couple pinches of fine-grain sea salt
3 medium-large cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup mixture of almonds and walnuts, chopped
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Saute the tofu in large hot skillet (or pot) with olive oil and a bit of salt until golden and slightly crispy. Add the garlic and nuts, and cook for another minute. Stir in sugar. Cook for another couple of minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
