  • While tofu is draining pipes, prepare sauce by adding dry spices to a small bowl and including adequate water to make a pourable sauce. Reserve.

  • As soon as hot, include olive oil and the onion and red pepper. Cook until softened– about 5 minutes.

  • Include kale, season with a bit more salt and pepper, and cover to steam for 2 minutes.

  • In the meantime, unwrap tofu and use a fork to fall apart into bite-sized pieces.

  • Sauted for 2 minutes, then add sauce, putting it mainly over the tofu and a little over the veggies. Cook for another 5-7 minutes till tofu is slightly browned.
