Sweet Gingery Tofu


I made this sweet gingery tofu with a friend who has 4 kids, age 4 to 14, and she was convinced this would be a pretty tough sell to all four of them come dinner time. I think she was actually laughing at me because the thought of her whole family eating tofu together was absurd. I feel so vindicated! She called me the night she prepared it and said the kids were actually fighting over who got the last piece. Seriously, this recipe is THAT good!

The dish is so easy because you probably have most of the ingredients on hand, you only need one dish to mix them all in AND it's inexpensive to make_ less then $3 for 4 servings! Serve it with some edamame and brown rice and you have a protein, carb and vegetable that makes for the perfectly balanced, asian-inspired meal.
