This is a delicious, quick and simple meal to whip up when you’re pressed for time. 

Serves 4

 

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, plus extra for drizzling

1 small onion, minced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon minced ginger

1 pound firm-tofu (or extra-firm)

1 bunch leafy greens, remove stem and tear into pieces (I like kale!)

2 tablespoons tamari

2 medium size yams, baked, cooled, peeled and cut into chunks

3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

 

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large pan, and sauté onion, garlic and ginger for a bout a minute.
  2. Tear the tofu into bite-size pieces and sauté with the onion mixture for about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add the greens and tamari. Sauté for about 7 minutes, or until the greens have completely cooked down. Add a little water if needed. 
  4. Add the yams and gently stir enough to cook through. 
  5. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds and a drizzle of toasted sesame oil.
