PREP TIME 5 min TOTAL TIME 2 hr 15 min SERVINGS 2

Ingredients

8 oz extra-firm tofu
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 package Green Giant® Sautés Indian Spiced Lentils

  • 1Wrap tofu in several paper towels, and place in shallow dish. Weigh down with another dish, and refrigerate 2 to 8 hours.
  • 2Cut tofu into 3/4-inch cubes, and place in medium bowl. Season with salt. Mix cornstarch and curry powder; sprinkle over tofu through a fine mesh strainer, stirring gently to coat on all sides.
  • 3Heat heavy-bottomed 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; sear tofu in oil 1 to 2 minutes on all sides until brown and crispy. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.
  • 4Meanwhile, prepare vegetable blend as directed on package; serve with tofu.

Pair your Green Giant® Sautés Indian Spiced Lentils and tofu with a quick coconut basmati rice for a complete meal. Make 2/3 cup uncooked basmati rice with 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup water as directed on package. Canola or peanut oil are also great choices to use for frying oils, because they have a higher smoke point.
